In this workshop, students learn how photographic techniques can tell a story and create different dynamics between the photographer, subject and viewer. Students work with each other and community members to craft unique portraits that empower their subjects. Students bring their own digital camera (smartphone, point-and-shoot or SLR) and a notepad.

Instructor Mercedes Jelinek is a New York-based photographer who is currently a resident artist at Penland School of Crafts. After earning bachelor and master of fine arts degrees in photography, she built a freelance photography career in architecture, fashion, event and journalism. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and can be found in numerous museum and private collections. Her latest book These Americans is about the Women’s March on Washington.

A NOTE ABOUT OUR ONLINE MUSEUM SHOP: We are in the process of building a new Online Museum Shop, which includes all adult program and event tickets. The Shopify system we have switched to offers a more streamlined process than our previous Online Shop. One of our wonderful interns will be updating the new Shop’s design over the next month, so pardon our dust. Please be assured that the site is secure and don’t hesitate to contact us at 828.253.3227 with any questions or concerns.
