Online Workshop 0.2: Photo

November 21st, 2013

The beta test of the six-week Transom Online Workshop (TOW) is underway: 24 learners on six continents spanning 20 time zones. You can look and listen in as learning flows from their Facebook Group. Here are a few of our favorite works from the Assignment 1: Photo Interview:

  1. Using a pen, some paper, and a camera interview seven strangers by asking the question: “What are you afraid of?” Write down what they say. Ask follow-up questions. Try to find a story with a beginning, middle, and end.
  2. Take the person’s photo.
  3. Choose the most interesting interview and edit it down to three sentences in the order of beginning, middle, and end.

Photographs and text by TOW-ers: Kim Fox, Luis Henrique, Bekah Johnson, Mark Kelleher, Kate Montague, Fritz Musser, Ivy Tzur, Stéphane Vigneault.

The TOW Mentor is Scott Carrier, author, photographer, professor, and radio producer. Thanks to the Knight Prototype Fund for support.
