Storytelling Through Photography with Josemar Gonzalez (virtual)

The arts have always been used as a tool to tell a story, capture a moment, and as a way to guide or educate others. With the advancements of technology, the majority of us now have access to tools to help us capture and create images, giving us the power to become storytellers. In this class we will be exploring different ways of documentation and storytelling through the use of photography and image making.
