Portraits at the Margin: Narrative, Place & Photographic Practice
May 30–June 1, 2014
Come together with fellow photographers to reflect on and grow your creative practice in this weekend intensive. South African photographer Pieter Hugo (AIR ’14), artist and SFAI faculty member Alice Shaw, and writer, curator, and critic Glen Helfand (AIR ’03) lead participants through a series of individual and group exercises. Activities include artist presentations, critique sessions, literature-based prompts, and field time amidst the historic landscape of the Marin Headlands. Photographers at all levels are welcome to register; registrants should be prepared to present an existing body of work as part of participation.

Landscape Alchemy: Sense, Place & Re-Materialization
June 6–8
Scale the hillsides in search of new perspectives, dunk photographic paper in the surf, and discover the secret power of fog. Using the dynamic landscape of the Marin Headlands as muse, this project-based workshop explores representation of place at the intersection of image-making and natural phenomena. Artists John Chiara (AIR ’10), Liam Everett (GF ’12–’13, AIR ’14), and Meghann Riepenhoff (AFF ’12–’14) guide participants through a range of experiences including the creation of seaside cyanotypes, experiments in collective landscape photography, and tutorials involving the physical environment in the art-making process.

Accommodations & meals
Located on the coast just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands is a quintessential Northern California experience, offering a rugged coastline, wildlife, and a refreshing quiet. Live-in participants receive a private room in one of the Center’s historic officers’ quarters. Refined from their former incarnation as a military base, the accommodations offer a rustic-chic and comfortable ambience.

“Quiet, peaceful, delicious, abundant, dietary-friendly… A+”

Chef-prepared, locally sourced meals are served family-style in the artist-renovated Mess Hall. As in life, some of the best work happens at the dinner table, where participants get to know each other, share stories, and exchange ideas.
