Photography workshop by Lila Zotou

Reading through contemporary photography with a focus in visual storytelling and building a strong portfolio.

The workshop invites photographers to participate in the process of portfolio reviews. During this process, together we will analyse various viewpoints and approaches of each participant in order to understand the role of photography in today's creative reality. At the same time, we will explore different visual narrative perspectives.

The aim of the workshop is to reflect on and deepen the understanding of existing personal photo projects or create new photo series out of existing ones where the participants will learn to combine ideas with experiences, arguments with imagination, topographies with the archeology of the image and images with words. The participants will be introduced to various uses of media in creating visual storytelling, which will enable them to understand the different genres of documentary photography and their role in today's contemporary art scene.

Participants are invited to bring together a printed or a digital portfolio of 15-20 photographs of an ongoing project. Workshop will take place in two days.
Day 1: presentation of several genres of contemporary photography narratives and presentation of partici-pants? work.
Day 2: Focus on personal portfolio reviews where each participant will have approximately 40 minutes of attention.
