Workshop: Arja Hyytiainen - Pied Dore

July 12-16, 2017

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 the images inside you on paper; work with the startingpoint 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

The workshop is open to any amateur or professional photographer.

Bring with your work on progress (preferably on paper), laptop, camera/s , texts,drawings or any other support that can help you on the process of working and editing the photographic work. There will be a scanner, fix computer and a darkdoom available.

The workshop will focus to deepen the personal language and the photographic work on progress. It is a practical workshop in the surrounding countryside. We start with presenting our works and projects and continue by photographing and editing so that the resulting work does not only become a style or a pretty image but a portrait of the individual who is telling his/her story. Please think of a project you would like to realize/continue working on/bring to end.

The workshop will be held at Pied Dore, St Florent des Bois, Vendee, starting at 10H Wednesday 12.7 until 18H Sunday 16.7.
