In this course, students take their knowledge of photography to a completely different level and learn how to use large format cameras! Over the course of four weeks, students will learn the mechanics behind 4"x5" and 8"x10" view cameras, as well as how to use these cameras in the field and studio environments. Students will spend a few weeks photographing at the Hoover Mason Trestle and South Side Bethlehem, followed by learning the ins and outs of processing large-format film and printing large-format images with museum-quality materials.

Edward A. Leskin was born in Allentown Pennsylvania in 1965. A lifelong student of politics and fine arts, he acquired an intense interest in photography during his last year at Moravian College (a double major in Political Science and Fine Arts) and then was accepted to Pratt Institute where he received his MFA (Photography) in 1991.

Mr. Leskin's work mostly addresses issues bigger than the individual. Subjects over the years include The Rise and Fall of Bethlehem Steel and its impact on the community, the impact and legacy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Washington D.C., the Israeli Palestinian conflict, the politics and social conditions in Russia, as well as many other issues of human significance.
