This immersive course takes participants on a quest for their own photography, revealing as much about them as about others, the near, the far and the moment before or after.
The intense six-day course is open to all but especially to those who want to deepen their personal approach and develop their photographic language. Martin Bogren will discuss their earlier work and share methods and approaches, and guide the participants through their means and intentions.
They will undertake a personal project which aims, beyond making a series, to develop an individual language and to trust their hunches.
The course will focus on content more than technology, alternating between individual sessions and group discussions about the projects underway. Thought and editing processes will gradually give shape to a body of work.
The course will seek to develop the participants’ presence in their own photography, and encourage them to assert their ways of seeing.
