LFI Workshop with Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol
on May 28 and 29, 2016, 10 am to 6pm
About the workshop
Our pictures are an on-going study of our relationship to the world, and the camera is the instrument with which we try and understand our surroundings and our place in the world.
With discussions on previous works and a current assignment, this workshop will be a place for new encounters as well as a journey to one's own self. It is a study of the undefined emotional states that control us, but that also inspire and push us forward. The aim of the workshop is to take pictures that create a visual connection to each of the characters. With their intimate, human and present nature, the images should invite the viewer to take a look at his/her own existence, as well as his/her surroundings. The workshop will also explain how to intuitively edit one's work.
Participants will received details of the assignment and things to prepare by email in good time.
