The first one, No. 01 is a five week ode to shadows and is all about feeling and seeing photography from the absence of light.
It’s about seeing beyond the obvious, about understanding darkness and its role in our images. It is a reflection, a journey to understand that the space of the shadow is the space of the intimate, of the unknown. We will talk about negative space, nuances, depth, distance, projection, penumbra, vulnerability, the seduction of what is not shown, the volume of objects, but above all we will talk about photography.
We will dedicate one week to the shadow in the spaces, another to the portrait, then to the objects and the last one to the self-portrait.
This workshop is aimed at all those photographers or photography enthusiasts who want to nurture their creative process and develop their vision.We will achieve that through the group dialogue, the study of relevant authors in each topic and the realisation of the 4 exercises that will close each week.
It is a workshop that can be used from wherever you are in your photographic path and although it is advisable to have certain skills with photographic tools, the exercises can be approached in different ways. We’ll focus on the important: to learn to see from the shadow.
