The KZNSA invites written motivations for suitable applicants for the next Durban Centre for Photography's (DCP) Contemporary Documentary Photography course in 2015.

A comprehensive 12 week, full time program that gets underway in middle of February 2015, and is limited to only 12 applicants.

This intensive course offers upcoming photographers the opportunity to develop visual critical thinking and personal aesthetics with the camera as a tool for seeing their world, to build a body of work that will be exhibited at the KZNSA Gallery. The emphasis on the subjective is an important ethos of the DCP's quest for promoting the building of an African aesthetic to embrace notions of diversity, context, seeing, thinking and communicating diverse realities through the visual, using the medium of photography.

The teaching methodology of the DCP promotes learning through self-motivated practice based projects centered on personal insights and explorations of a chosen subject or theme. The participants will be guided by photographers, which mentor from behind their work. The DCP see’s 6 themes as important to ‘making’ of photographs: History of African Photography, Visual Literacy, Visual Intelligence, Critical Thinking, The Act of Photography and Conceptual Approaches.



Times:
9am - 4pm / Monday to Friday
Cost: R4000 (Bursaries available for limited deserving applicants)
Equipment: Studio with Apple Mac computers and loaned DSLR cameras available.
