This workshop is not for digital photoshop liars, reportage, landscape or portrait photographers, conceptual artists or career seekers. It is a workshop for the unsure, the poets, the dreamers, all of those who feel they don’t fit in the system!
During the six day experience we will discuss content rather than form and how to make a coherent statement through sequencing for an exhibition, a portfolio or abook.Using photography as a scalpel. Perform visual surgery into a make-believe world. Getting to some kind of personal visual truth.
Work is about making things as simple as possible, using one camera, one lens, one eye and time to waste. Walking, thinking, talking.Photographs consist on making an attempt to get to the core of things, people and places, by contemplation and acute action, by reduction not accumulation.
The participants will work on their personal obsessions and concerns. Focusing on pain of being and assuming the errors. Learn how to deal with fear and luck, cutting into the wound and trying to get down to the bone.
So we can all learn a bit more and cheat death one more day.
