About Facilitator

Guarionex Rodriguez, Jr. is a Dominican-American artist based in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2011. His work explores the ways in which diasporic unity and niche musical movements have served in the creation of community and identity in the recent past and present. Simultaneously, he experiments with analog techniques to bring elements of abstraction to his figurative images. 


 What is the feeling of taking a photograph? By better understanding the feelings behind image-making, participants can develop a more nuanced way of navigating a place to create the right moment for image making. In this open format photography workshop and walking practice, participants will explore how setting intention and allowing curiosity to lead the way can create a unique frame for visual storytelling. Using the proximity of Brower Park and the many forms of life that use and inhabit NYC Parks, participants will explore feeling and space, share, and learn together.

What to Bring:

  • A camera of choice. All cameras accepted, including phone cameras.
