During each session a group of 10 people will be taken down a personal path to explore new means of creating visual documents, traveling beyond the classic documentary mechanics of storytelling.
Whilst discussing some unique possibilities within the realm of documentary photography, Cristina, Scott and Kim will strive to put the participants at the heart of the creative process through individual assignments that will encourage each one to uncover their own voice and approach.
The workshop will provide a fresh perspective and hopefully give its participants a renewed sense of experimentation, which they will be able to carry forward and expand in their future photographic practice.
For 5 days in June, both participants and the 3 photographers will stay in a beautiful country house, peacefully located in the Umbria region of Italy. This remote property will be our base and should provide the perfect framework for a rewarding and intimate experience. Transport will be arranged in order for the participants to immerse themselves photographically in the nearby town of Perugia.
Apart from gaining valuable guidance from the photographers, the successful realization of this workshop will largely depend on each participant’s willingness to push boundaries and challenge conventional ideas and processes. It will be 5 days of exchange, honesty and hard work, set in a supportive environment designed to further artistic development.
