Culture Pass Presents: Photographic Storytelling with the Alice Austen House Museum

Event Details

This event will take place in-person at Stapleton Library.

Join Alice Austen House‘s photographic teaching artists to be introduced to the world of portraiture. Alice Austen (1866-1952) was a Victorian photographer who documented her world and the people of the late 19th century. In this hands-on lesson we will draw inspiration from Austen’s vintage photographs to direct and take portraits with a focus on the camera angle, framing, composition, and personal narratives. Participants will present their work to the group and take home their original B&W portrait.

This event is intended for Adult Audiences Ages 50+
