After reading about it on Decor8, I immediately signed up for English photographer Susannah Conway‘s self-exploratory e-course, Unravelling: Ways of Seeing My Self. It was a pretty uncharacteristic move on my part, as I have a history of not following through with online classes, but I was so intrigued by the premise of Susannah’s course. Through photography and writing assignments, participants will exercise their creativity and gain an better sense of self-awareness, two things I am itching to do.
From Susannah’s website:
We’ll be using the camera as a tool to unlock how we see not only ourselves but also the world we live in, including the immediate surrounds of our homes, places of work and our friends and family. We’ll delve into the past and turn our thoughts towards the future.
There will also be writing prompts and exercises that will support your photo projects and encourage greater self-awareness. Some of the assignments and exercises you’ll find quite easy; others you may find more challenging. My aim is to help you really see yourself and begin to tell your story. By the end of the course you’ll have a new appreciation for your one wild and precious life. You’ll also have a set of images that provide a fascinating insight into who you truly are.
If this interests you, there may still be room to sign up. How fun would it be to do this together!
