Critical Photo and Video Practices: Research Methods and Forms of Dissemination
With a BA in Communications, a Master's of Fine Arts in Documentary Media, and as a photographer and installation artist, visual documentation has always been central to Lara Rosenoff Gauvin's research practice- in her methodologies, and forms of dissemination of her work, but also as central ethical dilemmas to the representational aspects of all forms of research. In this workshop she will share some of the questions/dilemmas that she has encountered over the years, and will then workshop with the group participants' questions regarding photography and video in their own work. Lara hopes that this dialogue will be useful to anyone who struggles to incorporate photography and video into a critical research practice. Please bring specific questions for the dialogue!
