Tariq will introduce ideas and practices that will help you find that authentic creative place inside yourself to make strong photographic work with feeling and emotion.

Taking advantage of this story book location, the week will be a combination of hands on Photogravure printmaking, discussions, image reviews, and plenty of time to walk, explore reflect and photograph at your own pace.
