9:00 am – 4:00 pm WORKSHOP: Making a Life as a Photographic Artist with Richard Tuschman
Every photographer is potentially poised to make a unique creative contribution. Yet optimal artistic growth and expression can only be achieved through proper nurturing. This workshop introduces a roadmap, a guided journey, for realizing your creative potential as a photographic artist. Step by step, Richard will discuss techniques, tools, and strategies to foster long-term growth for photographers at all stages of their careers. Topics discussed in this day-long workshop will include “Finding Your Voice As An Emotional Messenger”, “Orchestrating A State Of Creative Flow”, “Responding to Rejection With Resilience”, and “Learning To Hurdle Creative Block.”, among others. While rooted in contemporary research, these strategies have all been instrumental in Richard’s decades-long artistic practice.
Please note that participants portfolios will not be reviewed as a part of this workshop.

LOUIE PALU: ARCHIVE 192
Archive 192 is a not for profit research archive founded in 2015 that is focused on abstractionist photography by women. Founder Louie Palu will provide an inside view behind the collecting, researching, building of an archive including the administration and strategies involved in such a project, joined by Claire A. Warden, whose print was the first acquired by the archive. The name Archive 192 comes from reversing the name of Alfred Stieglitz’s Gallery 291, which is considered a seminal part of the evolution and history of photography. The first public exhibition of work held in Archive 192 will take place in 2020 at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
The goal of Archive 192 is to eventually place all the materials in an appropriate institution, which can care for and make available the materials for research and education. The archive is composed mostly of original prints, artist books, audio recordings, and ephemera. The archive now holds over 100 prints ranging from work by Florence Henri, Dorothy Norman and Lucia Moholy to contemporary photographers such as Clare A. Warden.
Archive 192 founder, Louie Palu, has been working on archives and researching photographers as a part of his practice since 1991 when he worked as an intern to Mary Ellen Mark.“My philosophy is that as a community we should always be in a process of re-evaluating our art practices and the institutions that exhibit and collect photographic work. Since my first internship in 1988 at Gallery 44 and through two fellowships at the Center of Creative Photography and the Harry Ransom Center I have researched and worked in archives large and small and collected photographs from the position of a practitioner. From very early on in my career I have been disturbed by the inequality of women in our field. I started Archive 192 using my own resources and minimal funding as an independent archive, which is operated free of some of the institutional gatekeeping that traditionally has shaped how we view the history of photography.”
