Intensive workshop on Visual language and photobook
with Corinne Noordenbos and Fiorenza Pinna
For the first time in Italy a workshop with Corinne Noordenbos, one of the best experts of photography and the photographic book. Awarded several times for his work as a teacher has been reference for many of the most renowned photographers of the moment including Rineke Dijkstra, Viviane Sassen, Rob Hornstra and WassinkLundgren
“What is really impressive about the collaboration between Noordenbos and her students is the professional standard of their work. The bar is set high. They devise good projects and make good photographs, and the presentation of these projects in book form has taken the students’ ambition and achievements to new levels.” (Martin Parr)
Two working days conceived for photographers willing to develop their project into a book and ready to do it with others.
The workshop’s main aim is to extend the ability to find solutions and trigger new ideas through group work, sharing and exchanging. We will focus on the possible methods of transforming/translating a photography project into a book with examples, possibilities and images storytelling construction schemes; training in all the main aspects of the development of the presented projects.
We’ll go deeper into the body of work presented in the workshop to consolidate and find the best balance between all the elements of the project. We will discuss and experiment in order to develop the project both in concept and design, finding and experiment new elaborations and possible solutions.
