Have you been working on a project for a period of time and wish to make sense of it?
Do you want to edit/curate your photographs with logic and structure?
Do you wish to develop your personal way of streamlining your work?
Do you hope to learn the different ways of editing/curating for an editorial spread, an exhibition wall, a photo book or a slideshow presentation?
If your answer is yes to any of the questions, this workshop is tailored for you!
This intensive two-day workshop is recommended for budding and professional photographers/artists who have started (or completed) at least one body of work using the medium of photography.
This workshop is also suitable for anyone (collectors, editors, curators, writers etc) interested in the different ways artists and photographers put photographs (and other elements, including text, drawings and design) together in a coherent way.
The workshop is open to anyone pursuing photography either in a conceptual or documentary vein.
This is NOT a Photoshop or Lightroom workshop!
The class opens with an extended lecture on some of the common strategies to edit a body of work.
The lecture introduces the five-picture edit and how we can apply its logic for newspaper and editorial work.
I will then deconstruct the logic, so that we may develop new and unique ways to edit each participant’s work, according to her or his artistic statement and the mode of delivery.
The subtle differences in terms of editing for editorial spread, photo book, online portfolio, slideshow presentation, and print exhibition will be highlighted during the lecture.
Day One + Two
In a collaborative way, each participant will then work with me towards a rough edit of her or his work.
For participants without ongoing or completed work, sample projects will be prepared for them to try their hands on.
As a whole, the workshop constitutes the start of the curating process. Hopefully, the editing process will reveal missing gaps and future trajectories for each participant’s work.
What to Bring?
The easiest way to edit is to bring small, mini-lab prints of your work. Bring a very loose edit. Bring as many images as you can afford to print.
The other alternative is to bring your images in your laptop.
This workshop is open to participants of any nationality.
There is a pre-selection process.
Please send a URL link or PDF of your work to indicate your interest in the workshop.
Send the application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once selected, each participant will be contacted (before the workshop) to begin preparing her or his editing statement for the work (if any) to be edited. Guidelines will be sent to aid this process.
Price: RM 250 per person
Upon selection, participants will be required to pay to reserve their slots.
In Malaysia, local bank transfer is preferred. Details to be provided via PM.
Payment can also be made in cash or bank transfer in Singapore, or internationally through Paypal.
