images

Deadline

20 November 2017

Opportunity Description

After three successful iterations of the encounters, we have had the pleasure of established professionals such as Mario Macilau, Michelle Loukidis, Buyaphi Mdledle and Musa Nxumalo giving their invaluable feedback to the project.

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 existing and ongoing bodies of works with the idea of receiving feedback.

The fourth encounter session will be split into two sessions:

Morning session

  • The morning session is dedicated to professional feedback from established photographers.
  • The idea for these morning sessions is to be an educational conversation amongst peers and professionals to unpack technical and practical aspects of photography.
  • The first feedback session will focus on editing, which in essence is the process of how narrative informs the editing and selecting of images.

Afternoon session

  • The afternoon session will focus on the work presented by selected participants of which will be open to discussion by and amongst peers and professionals.

At the fourth 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.
