The New Mexico Photography Field School is pleased to announce the FINDING GEORGIA O‚KEEFFE photography workshop that explores the compositional techniques O‚Keeffe used as a means of understanding the complexity of the New Mexican Landscape. Participants will have an outstanding opportunity to photograph the colors, shapes and textures of the desert world that stimulated this icon of twentieth-century art. The workshop is being offered from August 5 through 11, 2002 and is based in Abiquiu, New Mexico.
For 15 years now, the New Mexico Photography Field School has offered exceptional photographic workshops based on the history, character and beauty of New Mexico - truly the State of Enchantment. The School is directed by Craig Varjabedian, a fine-art photographer of the lands and peoples of the the American Southwest. His widely collected, exhibited and published photographs are known for their beauty, tonal delicacy and visual isolation of natural and human environments. Joining the FINDING GEORGIA O'KEEFFE workshop will be Floyd Trujillo, who will share stories about the sites visited and reminisce about O‚Keeffe and the years he worked with her: also Cathy Wright of the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center will present discussions on O'Keeffe's art in New Mexico and historical and biographical context.
