Written Pictures: Blending Images and Text to Create Impactful Narratives with Russell Cambron
Led by Atlanta-based photographic artist Russell Cambron, who holds M.F.A. degrees in writing and photography, the Written Pictures workshop explores techniques for successfully blending images and text to create impactful narratives.
Written Pictures will begin by looking at the ways lens-based artists employ text in their work. This will include a survey of photographers like Barbara Kruger and Shirin Neshat, who overlay text on their images to make pointed social critique; Duane Michals, whose handwritten texts weave together his photographs into whimsical and philosophical narratives; and Bernard Faucon, who inserts three-dimensional text sculptures into landscapes and, at other times, writes directly on his subjects.
We will also consider participants’ unique interests and visions for combining text with their images and will tailor the workshop accordingly. Over the course of our three sessions together, participants will realize their own compositions of images and text and will have the opportunity to benefit from each other’s experience and expertise through a series of workshop critiques.
Russell Cambron explores memoir, intimacy, and beauty through the photographic lens and the written word. He holds M.F.A. degrees in photography and writing from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta.
Russell’s premier solo exhibition, Boy, Owl, and Raven, showed at Whitespec gallery in Atlanta in 2017. His written works have been published in the Ivy Hall Review and the award-winning SCAD Connector.
Russell facilitates workshops on writing and photography with the Atlanta Photography Group and is Department Head for Humanities at Fusion Academy Buckhead, where he teaches courses in English literature, history, and photography.
