Visual Literacy with Dave Heath and Gisela Torres

Posted on

On the 20th March a group of A Level Photography students took part in a Visual Literacy workshop at the Photographers’ Gallery in London. The workshop was based on the exhibition ‘Dialogues with Solitude’ by Dave Heath and it was led by the well-known photographer and filmmaker, Gisela Torres.  She introduced the timeless images by Dave Heath and engaged the students in thoughtful discussion about his work, as well as enabling the students to take their own portraits based on his dramatic lighting and poses.

The students’ said the best thing about the trip, was “seeing the exhibition” and “using the lights to produce atmospheric portraits.” At the end of the gallery visit students’ took the opportunity to take street photos as we walked through the bustling streets to Convent Garden.
