Explore the narrative power of still-life photography from home with renowned documentary photographer Maggie Steber in an online masterclass from April 27 - May 8. Inspired by Steber’s recent experiences working with still life in the midst of the corona pandemic and her Guggenheim-winning project, “The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma”, this workshop is about making photographs of small things that tell big stories.

Using the tradition of still-life photography and painting as a starting point, this program will challenge each participant to go beyond the traditional, by pulling stories from their imagination. This is a program of creative and personal exploration. It’s an invitation to discover the impact that working without rules or limits can have on your progression as a photographer.
