Failed It! Why Failure in Photography is Essential - with Odette England

    • Failed It! Why Failure in Photography is Essential
      A generative seminar with Odette England

      Failure is everywhere in our lives, especially in creativity. In this two-part course, we will discover and debate the complexities, challenges, and benefits of failure as photographic artists. We will encourage positive and unexpected thinking about failure. Students will be challenged to explore and assemble new works using unsuccessful or previously unfinished projects or ideas.

      In the first session, students will examine and learn from flaws, rejects, and mistakes. Together, we will look at the work of photographers who break the rules. After, students will be given bespoke assignments to support their creation of at least one new work, which they will bring to the second session to share with the class if they would like to. An approachable, friendly, and productive workshop structure is central. Students of all experience levels are welcome.
