Dates: June 24 – July 1, 2018
During the course the participants develop a self-chosen photo project of their choice. The motto "Spaces - Non-Spaces" should be understood as an open field of reference.
Under the guidance of the lecturer, you will learn to contextualise your work, to examine and expand your work habits, to condense the results of the pictures, and to try out new ways creatively in alternating practical and theoretical exercises as well as joint discussions. The aim of the workshop is to develop your own personal photo series that leaves room for your own interpretations and technical applications.
Any digital camera can be used in this workshop, optionally you can bring your laptop. Experience with cameras or darkroom work is not required.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced photographers who would like to break the rules and expand their working approach.

Starting from brief presentations/ talk on my work and other different artists of my choice, I would like to emphasize on the relationship between painting and photography, how juxtaposition of two diverse images would generate another meaning and create an engaging visual experience. So I want to share my thoughts to all in which way different artists are using the photographic image conceptually.
The exercise will be to do an assignment corresponding to that topic. Basically I would like to emphasize about the creative aspect of the medium of photography, how a photograph becomes a creative work and transcends its inherent illustrative nature.
So another task will be creating a narrative. Photography is then a medium of documentation of this narrative. The works of Sophie Calle are good examples of this approach.
A further task is the juxtaposition of one photograph with another. Collage techniques and overpainting are further possibilities. Each class member is free to develop their own ideas in this class, or to go their own way from other possibilities. As the class progresses, participants will develop their own interpretations and applications. Therefore, any commercially available analogue or digital camera will be used in the workshop.
Experience with cameras or darkroom work is not required. This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as for experienced photographers who would like to break the rules.
