A collaboration between Myanmar Deitta and the Goethe Institut Myanmar, led by Calin Kruse / dienacht Magazine + Publishing.
For any photographer, the recording of images is the first part of their journey with a story. The process that begins after the camera has been put down is often more challenging. The photographer is required to reflect, to speak and even to write so that their work can have a full life.
In this workshop, it is this life and afterlife that we will be concerned with. This workshop is about the creation of photobooks on the one hand, as well as about rethinking your work in the context of a photobook on the other hand. Calin will work closely with the participants in the production and presentation of a book from their own photo projects over the course of four days, focusing on design, editing, sequencing and the importance of materials in the production of photobooks.
The Participation is FREE of charge.
The workshop is open to photographers from Myanmar who have a single body of work which includes at least 30 images (more images is preferable).
Applicants must send a brief introduction to yourself and your work, and a contact sheet showing at least 20 images from the body of work you wish to make into a book.
Please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “PHOTOBOOK WORKSHOP”.
