Claire Rosen’s “Constructed Image” at International Center Of Photography

12This advanced workshop covers all of the elements involved in creating conceptual and thematic imagery from idea generation through execution. It is ideal for photographers who are comfortable with the technical aspects of their equipment and want to create staged narrative images. Students are taken step by step through the process of how to make a picture concept a reality, covering mood boards, production sheets, pre-production, and scheduling, with lectures on how to source locations, props, and lighting theory; how to cast and work with subjects; as well as problem-solving, communication, and working efficiently on set or on location. Students develop and execute their shoot concepts with support from the instructor.

In preparation for this class, begin to gather props and wardrobe as you think about concepts you might like to execute during the workshop. Also, there will be some models available during the second day of the workshop, but if there is someone specific whom you would like to work with, you should make arrangements for them to be available that weekend.

You should also start looking through staged and/or conceptual imagery that you admire and bring examples of those images to the first class, as well as 10-16 examples of your work, either as low res jpegs or prints, and a pen and notebook. For the second day, you should bring your camera equipment, laptop and card reader, and the set, prop, and wardrobe needed for your shoot.

In addition to the above, there is a short reading assignment which should be completed before the start of class, and a survey which can be sent to the instructor beforehand, or brought to the first morning of class. Both the reading and survey will be sent to you upon registration.

The Paradoxical World of Claire Rosen

Click Here To Register For Paradoxical World Of Claire Rosen on September 17 at the B&H Event Space in NYC

Inspired by fashion and fairy tales, photographer Claire Rosen constructs whimsical worlds, designs costumes and captures beauty with her camera. As both a fine art and commercial photographer, Rosen explores the dualities that exist in life.

By working with themes and imagery popularized by fables and children’s stories, Rosen investigates universal truths while appealing to our desire for fantasy. Lightness and darkness, the real and the imagined, the beautiful and the bizarre – all of these paradoxes permeate Rosen’s work. Because of their contradictory nature, the tension generated by these pairs entices us to behold, inhabit and get lost in Rosen’s photographic narratives.

Once inside, we take part in an adventure. Despite having no clear destination, our adventure proves valuable. We encounter unusual characters, stumble upon enthralling situations and overcome obstacles. We are challenged by the unfamiliar and then rewarded with experience and knowledge. Luring us into worlds that blend fact and fiction and onto journeys that make us question that which we know, Rosen encourages us to look at the familiar in new ways. She spurs us into exploring the human condition. She allows us to gain insight into ourselves and each other. She lets us live in a fairy tale.

In this presentation, Rosen will share both personal and commercial work while highlighting her process from inspiration through execution.  She will discuss exploring one’s artistic roots, inspiration and creativity as well as brainstorming and concept development.
