Louie palu: Long Term Projects Workshop

Click! is pleased to partner with Duke's Center for Documentary Studies to offer this 3 part series of intensive workshops as part of the Click! Academy. These workshops are for photographers looking to advance their photography practice or a project they are working on. Drawing on his 25+ years of experience as a documentary photographer Louie Palu will share his specialized in-depth knowledge on successfully completing a long-term photography project from start to finish. Louie specializes in and is best known for his many award winning projects including a 15-year long project Cage Call: Life and Death In The Hard Rock Mining Belt on the working lives of hard rock miners. He has been awarded 15 grants and fellowships to fund his work, which will guide an in-depth lesson on grant writing. Having been mentored by some of the world’s most recognized curators and photo editors an in-depth lesson on long form editing and sequencing images for books and exhibitions will be another core component of this workshop. Fieldwork techniques from working at home in your own community to war zones will be covered. In addition, successful audio and video techniques, publishing and exhibiting your work will also be discussed along with several other topics.
