Art of Phoneography / Photo Tour of Ford Mansion
Saturday, August 3, 2019 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Morristown National Historical Park is offering a free smartphone photography workshop, The Art of Phoneography, at its Washington’s Headquarters Location on Saturday, August 3 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The workshop – taught by Xiomaro, a nationally-exhibited photographer and published author – includes an exclusive photo-tour of the Ford Mansion, which served as George Washington’s headquarters.
Registration for this free, limited space workshop is required by calling Jude Pfister at (973) 539-2016 x204.
The workshop will introduce five key artistic principles demonstrated with slides of photographs and paintings, with the aim of making photography accessible to more people by minimizing technical issues that are often a barrier. Xiomaro and the group will walk the park grounds and George Washington’s headquarters to create unique images using workshop techniques.
Xiomaro (pronounced “SEE-oh-MAH-ro”) is an internationally recognized artist and speaker whose photography has been covered by The New York Times, CBS News, Star Ledger, and News 12. His work has been exhibited at Harvard University, Fraunces Tavern Museum, as well as galleries and public spaces.
Participants need only bring their fully-charged smartphone (any brand is fine) or camera with plenty of available storage space for the new photos that will be created. A portable USB phone charger or spare battery is helpful. Comfortable walking shoes are suggested along with some snacks. For more information visit Xiomaro’s website.
