Workshop Description

History and art are coming together with the technologies of our digital age. In this workshop presentation, master photographer, digital artist, and bestselling author Harold Davis will discuss the synergy between handcrafted work and state-of-the-art digital technology in light of historic trends.

Harold Davis will use his stunning and unusual work as case studies in creativity. He will reveal the secrets behind his imagery, and explain how his unique creative methods enable him to get results that no one else can.
