About the workshop


Temps Mort— Exploring a slow, serial aesthetic.

Join acclaimed photographer Raymond Meeks for a five-day workshop exploring the formidable relationship and emotive power of working in sequences.

A series of images, whether narrative or non-narrative, can generate feeling in ways that defies reason. This workshop will consider the restrained pacing of pictures and the value of slowing down and lingering in a space of related or repetitive imagery. It will seek methods to narrow the scope and dependence on subject matter—to be less reliant on content and shift toward an exploration of form.

With Meeks as mentor, you will consider the elements of book design, sequencing, and image layout. There will also be time each day to observe Santorini and make pictures.
Participants are asked to bring an expanded archive of their images in the form of postcard-sized prints, as well as to have access to outlier images that stored as digital files.

Raymond Meeks

Raymond Meeks (Ohio, 1963) has been recognized for his books and pictures centered on memory and place, the way in which a landscape can shape an individual and, in the abstract, how a place possesses you in its absence. His books have been described as a field or vertical plane for examining interior co-existences, as life moves in circles and moments and events—often years apart—unravel and overlap, informing new meanings. His work is represented in numerous private and public collections. He is the sixth laureate of Immersion, a French-American photography commission sponsored by Fondation d’entreprise Hermès. ICP hosted an exhibition from this commission, and a show is slated for Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris in September 2024. Meeks is a 2020 recipient of a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Photography and was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2022. The Inhabitants, a book made in collaboration with writer George Weld, was published in August 2023 by MACK.
