A consistent and unique individual photographic style may be derived from a solid fundamental knowledge of aesthetics— what Michael Kelly describes as ‘critical reflection on art, culture and nature.’ Join us in an intensive, enriching group journey into the seemingly amorphous world of human desires, emotions and sentiments in the context of art and creativity, providing remarkably clear and practical philosophical conclusions that will imbue your images with depth, truth, and genuine, enduring meaning.
Peter Shaindlin is a contemporary photographer whose work concentrates on the importance of understanding and using the classical canon in the representation of the human body, centering on the female nude as a center of power. Peter studied photography and visual arts at NYU and has taught photography, focusing on the human form as well as the importance of classical principles in contemporary art. He is represented by Westwood Gallery in New York City.
