Photoworks is a vibrant and unique resource for photographers. Our philosophy is simple: Creative dialogue with fellow photographers, an intimate learning environment, and outstanding faculty are the ingredients for creative growth. Through diverse programming – including weekly classes, weekend workshops, open darkrooms, digital labs, monthly critique sessions, lectures, and regularly changing gallery exhibits — members of the Photoworks community find common ground with other professional and student photographers and cultivate their technical skills and artistic vision.

Distinguished by its program of small classes taught by a faculty of leading commercial and fine art photographers who are committed teachers and mentors, Photoworks is housed in a brand new studio equipped for black & white film development and printing, a digital classroom, a studio area and an exhibition gallery.  Photoworks operates in cooperation with the Glen Echo Partnership for Arts and Culture Inc.

STATEMENT

“Visual Calculus in Photography” is a one-time reunion of a chosen group of talented photographers who have built for themselves a solid reputation through their personal research, exhibition, writings and publications.

This exhibition emphasis the importance of image construction/composition in photography. A visual space where each photographer places the various elements that they wish to photograph in an orderly/chaotic fashion. A clear aspect of visual balance, a unique set of geometry rules, a distinct set of elements juxtaposition is present for each image.

For each photographer, a complex mental equation gets resolved when constructing their various images. As if, they get both sides of the complex visual equation at hand resolved, in perfect balance. An equation for which only they have the solution.
