Workshop with Arja Hyytiainen - Pied Dore
12-16 July 2016
"The five days at Pied Dore (12th July to 16th of July) situated on the countryside of Vendee, will focus on a ongoing project and/or the primary interests of the photographer. The starting point is the question "who am I". I would like you to work on a storyline that is the most important to you right now, photograph and work on the individual private space, transform your fears and dreams into images; work with the starting point on your identity. Turn the skin inside out.

I believe in translating emotion into images, feeling and experiencing life through photography, seeking and questioning, trying to see behind the visual reality. I'm interested in personal, self-experienced stories, the very individual language of expression."

-- Arja Hyytiäinen
