This pilot workshop will be run over three months. A new paradigm in photographic teaching, facilitating and mentoring is being explored. Themes include, the History of African Photography, Visual Literacy and Visual intelligence, Conceptual approaches to Photography, Critical thinking and the Act of Photography. Four questions underpin and coalesce these themes: What is a photograph? How do we read photographs? Why do we make photographs? How do we make photographs?
The past months has seen the group explore cultural, social and political identities as a precursor to exploring personal perspectives and vision. The workshop is image based with professional photographers teaching from behind their work. Peter McKenzie an internationally renowned photographer and facilitator is co-coordinating the project which will realize a diversity of training and workshop opportunities in 2014.
