Poetic Modes of Documentary and Representation

Date and Time: 
Friday, April 26, 2019. 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
McMurtry, 115
Workshop: 
Intersections of Documentary Filmmaking, Race, and Engagement
Meeting Description: 

Showing work in progress, Oscar-nominated filmmaker RaMell Ross will explore the process of making work deeply embedded in a community that he becomes part of. Interrogating black masculinity, Ross draws upon his well lettered background as a still photographer to explore new ways of visualizing race and community in a poetic documentary mode.

RaMell Ross earned a BA in both English and sociology from Georgetown University and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. His photographs have been exhibited internationally and his writing has appeared in such outlets as The New York Times and Walker Arts Center. He was part of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” in 2015, and a New Frontier Artist in Residence at the MIT Media Lab. In 2016, he was a finalist for the Aperture Portfolio Prize, winner of an Aaron Siskind Individual Photographer’s Fellowship Grant, and a Sundance Art of Nonfiction Fellow. In early 2017, he was selected for Rhode Island Foundation’s Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Artist Fellowship. RaMell is currently on faculty at Brown University’s Visual Arts Department.
