Leica photographer Danny Wilcox Frazier and his colleague Linda Bournane Engelberth are set to hold a workshop in Berlin on the topic of Berlin Night, Berlin Light: Exploring the Personal in Photography.
From 2 to 7 September 2019, twelve photographers have the opportunity to develop new approaches to their work, by spending five days creating a visual essay. On the sixth day of the workshop, the final projects will be presented at a public screening. The participation fee is $2,000; applications for a VII Academy workshop scholarship can be submitted until 7 August.
Born and raised in Iowa, Danny Wilcox Frazier studied photography before setting out to travel the world. When his wife became pregnant, the couple decided to return to the United States, whose social and political changes have been the photographer’s primary focus ever since. His book Driftless, addressing the depopulation of rural Iowa, was published in 2007. Most recently, a series of images captured in Nebraska – where 58.7 percent of the population voted for Donald Trump – were featured in LFI 5/2017.
The Norwegian-Algerian photographer Linda Bournane Engelbert dedicates much of her work to the topic of identity. Her photographs have previously been exhibited at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. Both photographers are members of the VII photo agency.
