Following the successful iterations of the Photo Lens Encounters, which have had over 35 participants in total of which selected individuals presented their ongoing projects, we are launching the 3rd open call!

To date we have enjoyed the presence of established professionals like Mario Macilau, Michelle Loukidis, Buyaphi Mdledle and Musa Nxumalo who gave their invaluable feedback.

About the project
Through a series of encounters, the PHOTO LENS project is focused on providing an informal platform for photographers at large to present their previous and ongoing work. At the third encounter, over and above the presentations, we would like to open the discussion with participants involved to share their input on how the project can be developed further.

The encounters are:

  • A platform for photographers to present existing, current and planned projects
  • An environment to discuss among peers and professionals respective bodies of work
  • A place of sharing and voicing concern – professional, technical, aesthetic, access to networks, packaging and presentation of professional portfolios

Application process:

Deadline: 11 September 2017
Feedback on selected participants: 18 September 2017
Event: 23 September at ROOM Gallery & Projects, 10h00 – 15h00
