The workshop focuses on understanding the storytelling process with a personal vision – exploring ways to incorporate personal experience and voice. We will work on the editing process, conceptualising ideas and presentations, and the physical process of creating a photobook / publication.
We will explore the process of generating ideas and refining concepts in the pursuit of a coherent photographic series in printed form. Through individual and group discussions and critique, participants will examine the strengths of their ideas and intentions, enhance their conceptualisation skills, and materialise the potential project into a publication.
The participants will arrive with one (or more ideas) they’d like to work on. The first few days will be spent examining and deconstructing those ideas, editing, and deciding which ideas are viable and which are not. The second part of the workshop will focus on layout, materials, and the final presentation in the form of a book or a publication.
Constructive criticism, honesty, and fairness towards each other will be the keys to a successful group process. Participants should expect to spend long hours, to push their boundaries and explore new ways of storytelling, to share their ideas and knowledge, and to be inspired by their peers. Experimentation and openness are encouraged.
