MEET UP: Photographic Art Appreciation

Photographic Art Appreciation

How to objectively analyze and critique a photograph. It is crucial to fully understand the inherent limitations and physical flaws of the medium in order to arrive at a comprehensive intellectual comprehension of photography. As a juror for local and national photography contests, Pierre Dutertre will guide you through the pitfalls of understanding and critiquing photographs based upon an established jury system and the major philosophy of the medium, helping you to not only assess the success of any photograph, but also your own work as a procedure to grow in the medium by objectively and impartially analyzing your personal photography. 

Pierre Dutertre is an accomplished commercial photographer with a highly successful track of national and international advertising work in Europe and America, resulting in many international awards, including a national ADDY and best of show in the Edinburgh Art Festival. In recent years Pierre’s diverse career has taken him in a new direction: fine art photography and education, for which he has been recognized by learning institutions and private collectors worldwide.

    It was a great event - we appreciate everyone who was there. Scott's working on a video of tidbits from the event - not certain when it will be done - but keep an eye on the Facebook as we'll post a notice there when it's up.

    I'm so sorry I couldn't attend, but I had something come up. I was going to change my RSVP, but then forgot. I know Jerri & Scott Menaul, so I let Jerri know I wouldn't be coming. Hopefully, in the future they'll have someone else that talks about this, so I can compare w/my teacher whose standards are pretty stringent fine art parameter critiques (I've learned so much from him). :)

    Not quite what I expected. Pierre is very knowledgeable, maybe too much for me.
