The camera is a remarkable instrument. Saturate yourself with your subject, and the camera will all but take you by the hand and point the way.

Margaret Bourke-White

In response to the current exhibition at Durban Art Gallery (DAG) – “Photos in Black and White: Margaret Bourke-White and the Dawn of Apartheid in South Africa”, the KZNSA’s Durban Centre for Photography (DCP) and DAG  present a FREE 5 day workshop for creatives and their cameras. This workshop is intended to use the photographic works of Margaret Bourke-White as a case study for looking, seeing and regarding one’s own subjectivity: how you look into your social, political and cultural identities and express these views with visual text.

Importantly this workshop asks: "How do I make photographs so that I can ask: Why do I have to make photographs?"

Dates: Monday 14th July to Friday 18th July

Venue: Durban Art Gallery

Times: 10am – 2pm (Refreshments will be served)

Facilitators: Peter McKenzie, Liza du Plessis, Paulo Menezes and Shirin Motala

Limited spaces: 20 people (Booking is essential)

Requirements: Looking for creatives with a willingness to explore their potential in visual communication and are prepared to immerse themselves in the intensity of the workshop. We can provide a limited number of cameras, but if you have your own please bring it along.
