Saturday mornings, June 29 – August 24, 2019, 10am-12:30pm
Instructor: Franco Salmoiraghi

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn from one of Hawaii’s master photographers.

Photographer Franco Salmoiraghi integrates class assignment with discussing his work from a lifetime of 65 years in photography. He says, “I have been fortunate to see the world through the lens of a camera. Making a living as a photographer has molded my life and the images I have made.”

Pictures accumulate over years and decades. However, it is in the day to day experiences of observing the world we encounter by picking up a camera and noting the visual evidence of what we see and feel in our most intimate vision that may lead us to the memories of our lifetime.

What is a photographic memory? How may we use our images to create and tell stories? Is what we see today –– in a photograph we made yesterday –– evidence of a moment lived –– or does it create a map leading toward an understanding of those ephemeral experiences?

Participants explore situations and possibilities, in weekly discussions, assignments, and field work, based on subject and content of photographs in his presentations.
