ell Your Stories – Editing and Curating Workshop
@ Satya Art Gallery, Navajivan Trust, Ahmedabad

In this day and age of digital photography, making photographs has become easy.

The real challenge lies in providing context to ones photographic work and presenting it in a form that does justice to it.

This two day workshop has been designed for practitioners interested in working on long term documentary projects.

The workshop will touch upon the following;

– Understanding ‘context’
– The relevance of working on photo essays/stories
– Building personal archives – the need to engage with the question – why make photos instead of how?
– How to curate your photography *
– Why study photo books?
– Looking at photography through the prism of Cinema, Literature and Music

Once the photographs or the photo story/essay has been shot, the act of editing – how many photos to select? Which to keep, which to discard? How to arrange/sequence them? – becomes the most decisive factor in deciding whether the work will hold its ground or loose its agency. Be it book making or mounting an exhibition, curation is integral to the act of showcasing photographs.

Who is it for:
For photographers, amateur and professional alike, who wish to work on chosen subject / projects. Also for who have been working on projects and feel need for understanding of Editing and Curating aspects. Anyone who sees photography as a medium to voice an opinion or an idea.

What can you expect upon completion of this workshop:
If you have been working on a subject / project, you can expect to come out with a neat edit of work that you have already done. You can spend better part of two days to explore how you can further your project. If you wish to work on a subject, you can gain better understanding of how to approach a subject and explore in a way that leads to effective photographs.
