If a photograph is to communicate its subject in all its intensity, the relationship of form must be rigorously established. Photography implies the recognition of a rhythm in the world of real things. What the eye does is to find and focus on the particular subject within the mass of reality; what the camera does is simply to register upon film the decision made by the eye.
The introduction to documentary photography workshop seeks -by reading texts, reviewing the work of other photographers and carrying out weekly exercises- to explore and discuss the fundamentals of the aesthetics and content of the images produced within the framework of journalistic and documentary photography of the 20th century to this day.
