    Join us for a very special workshop with renowned photographic artist Victoria Sambunaris whose large-scale photographs explore in both grand scale and exacting detail the continuously shifting American landscape. This unique two-day workshop will begin on Saturday with an off-site photographic road trip with Victoria to the South Puget Sound Hood Canal region. We will begin the day with a private tour of the Cushman Hydro Project and Dams on the North Fork of the Skokomish River where we will have time to explore and photograph with Sambunaris.

    From there, we will continue to the Hamma Hamma oyster farm to learn more about their operation and its relationship to the Hood Canal landscape (and perhaps share an oyster or two). Afterward, we will make our way back to Seattle by Ferry.

    On Sunday, participants will reconvene at PCNW for an afternoon group critique discussion facilitated by Sambunaris to share work made along the previous day’s journey together as well as personal work. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to spend time learning from Victoria Sambunaris and exploring the contemporary landscape of the Puget Sound region.

    Victoria Sambunaris photographs the continuing transformation of the American landscape with specific attention given to expanding political, technological, and industrial interventions. Each year, Sambunaris structures her life around a photographic journey traversing the American landscape. Equipped with a 5x7 inch field camera, film, a video camera and research material, she crosses the country alone by car for several months per year. Her work has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States and abroad. She is the recipient of numerous awards including the 2021 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship and the Anonymous Was a Woman Award. Radius Books published her monographs Taxonomy of a Landscape and soon to be released Transformation of a Landscape. She is represented by Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York.
