Poetry and Photography
Instructor: T. Cole Rachel

Thursdays 7 - 10pm | April 24 – May 22 (5 sessions)
Cost: $300. ($270 CCNY members)
This class is limited to 10 students.

Photography and poetry have one important thing in common—the focus on specific images, images that aren’t necessarily tied to a plot (as in fiction and film). What makes both poems and photographs good is a strongly felt point of view. This course, taught by poet and feature writer/critic T. Cole Rachel, will encourage the writing of poems while using photographers’ existing images as a source to unlock potential subject matter and discuss point of view. Students will explore different poetic forms—sonnets, haikus, odes—in a series of written exercises based on photographic prompts. Each student will write at least 4 poems during the 5-week class, and they will be read and workshopped in class. For photographers who have had the impulse to write poems and didn’t know how to get started, or who have written in the past but have lost touch with the art form, the class will be a stimulation to write, and to engage with some important voices in contemporary poetry. The class will read the work of a variety of contemporary poets, including Albert Goldbarth, David Kirby, Sharon Olds, Billy Collins, Walt Whitman, Jorie Graham, Denise Levertov, Elizabeth Bishop and W.H. Auden.

T Cole Rachel is a freelancer writer based in Brooklyn. His work has appeared in Interview, V, OUT, Numero, Purple, and The New York Times Magazine. His books include Surviving the Moment of Impact and Bend, Don’t Shatter. He is also a part-time bartender and collector of ceramic cats. His website is www.tcolerachel.com.

Advanced Directions: Expanding Personal Work into the Editorial & Social Media Arena
Instructor: Martine Fougeron

7 - 10pm | Mondays: April 28, May 5, May 12, May 19 & Tuesday, May 27 (5 Seminars)
Cost: $300 ($270 CCNY members)
This seminar course is limited to 8 people. Admission is subject to portfolio review. (contact CCNY for more details)

Martine Fougeron, known for her fine art portraiture of her teenage sons and their friends, and also for her editorial portraiture for The New Yorker, New York, and the NY Times Magazine, will offer a seminar for advanced photographers who are trying to balance their fine art projects with editorial efforts an social media. Are these different directions in conflict? Can they be reconciled? How do you keep up with the rise of social media, the online platforms of magazines, and the desire to work with a gallery? How can you think commercially while also making subjective decisions in your ongoing work? How do you make these avenues of production complement each other and work to your advantage? The three-hour class will meet in CCNY’s studio and will look in depth at each student’s work while addressing these contemporary questions. This course is for the advanced photographer who has obtained a degree or has the equivalent in development and experience and who has produced a body of work or is well into the production of one. There will two guests, one specializing in online editorial platforms and one in fine art.

Martine Fougeron began her Téte-á-Téte project in 2005 as a student at the International Center of Photography. In this series of intimate portraits of her two adolescent sons and their friends in New York and in France, she reveals the face-to-face engagement of the mother-photographer with the private world of two brothers and their teen tribe. The project was presented in 2013 at The Gallery at Hermes in New York. Curator and critic Charlotte Cotton has called the project “one of the best biographical stories that photography has crafted in the 2000s.” A monograph of this project will be published by Steidl later this year under the title Teen Tribe. Fougeron’s editorial work has been published in The New Yorker, New York, and the New York Times Magazine. Her website is www.martinefougeron.com.
