This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Unlock the artistry within your everyday moments in this black-and-white photobook workshop! Participants will be immersed in the world of storytelling through images as they capture the essence of their daily life. Explore the genre of photobooks, gaining insights and inspiration. Participants will select two poignant photos from their collection taken with their disposable camera (provided), combining them into a captivating diptych. Together, we'll weave these unique narratives into a collective work—a mini photobook that combines the shared stories of our diverse perspectives. Join us on this creative journey. Meet like-minded people, explore your creativity and your local environment. 

No photography experience is necessary, everyone is welcome.

About Selina Kudo:

Guided by the work of Japanese photographers like Masahisa Fukase, Miyako Ishiuchi and Daido Moriyama, Kudo embraces the Japanese aesthetic of are, bure and boke (meaning grainy, blurry and out of focus) to capture anything and everything, that is, the essence of life.
