Join photographer and artist Jason Gray in a special virtual workshop where you will learn about the importance of photography in this digital age. Together, we will answer questions about the significance of image generation in an era that is visually overstimulated and how the process of photography can actually help us to slow down and engage more thoughtfully with our surroundings. You will have the opportunity to take some images and receive a live critique of your work from Gray.
Approx. length: 3 hours
