Faculty: Deb Dawson developed her narrative voice at SALT Institute of Documentary Studies. Through contemplative observation, she photographs the working lives and lands of maritime communities. She was introduced to Maine 30 years ago while honing her photographic eye at Maine Media Workshops + College before completing her BFA in Photography at the University of Southern Maine. Later, Deb embarked on a series of adventures including earning her merchant mariner captain’s license, working as an archaeological and museum photographer in Carthage, Tunisia, and a decades-long career in graphic design. These varied experiences helped shape and provide meaning to her current work documenting the changing landscape of Maine.
Students must bring to class a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera with memory card. Manuals are helpful, too.
