Intimacy and Empathy in Storytelling

with Andrea Bruce & Stephanie Sinclair

All students in this class will come to the workshop with a general theme or issue they would like to explore in Istanbul. (These ideas should be emailed to me before we arrive in Istanbul). Once we are there we will discuss ways to make the story personal–to get involved with the issue on an intimate level. The goal of this class is to come away with emotional and empathetic photos to bring viewers closer to issues and the people they affect.

The Stories No One Wants to See and No One Wants to Cover

with Andrea Bruce

It is dangerous and thankless. Very few news organizations want to publish the photos and even fewer people want to actually look at them. Some people call the war in Iraq “the story of our generation.” It is important, without a doubt. ¬†As is Afghanistan. AIDS in Africa. The Israeli/Palestinian conflict. But they are stories people don’t want to see. Maybe they have seen the same images too often. Or maybe they are frustrated by the hopelessness of the situations. We will explore ways to help our photos reach our audience and make them want to pay attention.
