Satya Art Gallery in association with Greyscale Academy of Photography and Creative Vision is delighted to invite photographers for a one of its kind editing workshop in Ahmedabad.
The workshop will focus on understanding the meaning behind one’s individual images and how a group of such images can create an individual expression and become even more meaningful within one’s visual storytelling.
We all take pictures and want to break out of random imagery in search of a cohesive visual storytelling project, which helps us in many ways discover a world we wish to explore. We spend a substantial amount of time in search of our personal understanding of the subject, may it be a thematic documentary an issue or a contextual approach to one’s visual language.
Images always happen as we search for them, they come our way and they are made. We end up working on a large number of images as we evolve with the endless process of discovering and rediscovering our subject which finds us many ways to perceive it, while our relationship with our subject grows.
This is a process that gives us our freedom to create, yet we need a clarity to express our story and language to our audience.
Our learning during this workshop will be the hardest part of the final story telling. The final challenge will be in looking at everything we have put together over time and choosing only the right images, create the best link from the beginning to the end and understanding the process of self critique.
Day 01:The workshop will begin with each participants introducing themselves and their work to the mentors, as well as the mentors introducing themselves and their work to the participants. This will create a healthy understanding between everyone present at the workshop. The participants will then begin a process of getting the first opportunity to create a smaller selection of their images through a self critique of their own works. This will also open a dialogue between the participants and the mentors, where each will put down their individual perspectives. ( Work can be presented in either digital or small prints )
Day 02. Based on the firstday’s exercise, The mentors will have a sitting with each participant and curate their selection of the participant’s works. This will recreate the dialogue and give it a wider vision between one’s process and another understanding.
(The participants will now need to make/have small prints of both selections from Day1 and day 2 )
Day 03. All participants will lay down the 2 printed selections side by side to make a comparison. The final day will conclude with making each participant understand how to choose their focused direction, recognize the right imagery and their vision towards building a cohesive narrative.
Participants will need to bring images either on a Laptop/prints or both. A selection of images will have to be printed during the workshop.
