Right Beside You
LFI Workshop with the German photographer Julia Baier
on January 30 and 31, 2016, 10 am to 6pm
Before the workshop itself, participants are requested to find and photograph their personal theme, within a 200 metre radius of their home. The workshop then offers a platform to edit the pictures and transform them into a functioning series. This can result in a poetic series, social reportages, portrait series – everything goes.
