Randy Richmond Photography Workshop

Calling all nature loving photographers!

Randy Richmond, whose photographs are featured in the current exhibition, Subtext and Overstory: Still-life Photography by Randy Richmond, will guide participants in creating a still life photograph from personal objects and natural materials gathered from the Interpretive Center. Discussion will focus on how to develop a personal visual vocabulary as well as the history of still life photography and how it used today.

Supplies required: Please bring a DSLR or point and shoot camera with exposure compensation ability, and a comfortable knowledge of how it works. A tripod is suggested but not mandatory.

Participants are also asked to bring an object that holds personal meaning. The object must not be too small but not too large to be easily carried. Bring a sack lunch to eat.

Registration deadline is September 14.

Randy Richmond Gallery Talk

Join us at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 23 to hear a gallery talk from Randy Richmond, a still-life photographer. The humble still life—the genre of art that features only an arrangement of objects—has managed, over the centuries, to contain multitudes.

Still-life images are their own worlds, greater than the sum of their parts; they have been radical formal experiments, markers of colonialism and wealth, stark reminders of mortality, love letters and portraits, and even illustrations of scientific knowledge.

Randy will talk about his inspiration, process and technique in the exhibition Subtext and Overstory: Still-life Photography by Randy Richmond.
