Summer Workshop 2018 with Arja Hyytiaainen
Pied Dore, France, July 18-22, 2018
We all meet a lot of people, especially when you attend festivals, opening receptions and so on but some encounters are more significant than others. I was lucky to meet Arja and discover her work in Paris just before I left for the United States. Her images were dark, powerful and yet somewhat fragile.

I was immediately fascinated by her work and have never stoped following her projects since then. I wish I knew how she works, how she translates her emotions... Unfortunately I won't be in France next Summer, but if you can attend her workshops at the Pied Dore in July, register today since spaces are limited!

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The five days homeworkshop at Pied Dore (18th July to 22th 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.

Arja Hyytiäinen

"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

WHO CAN ATTEND
the workshop is open to any amateur or professional photographer.

MATERIAL
Bring with your work on progress (preferably on paper), laptop, camera/s , textes, 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.

DESCRIPTION
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 end on a outdoor projection of images on Sunday evening.

About Arja Hyytiainen
From the very beginning on photography has been more of a company, a way to keep and record the life around me than just a media. At some point it becomes obsessive. To keep time, life, people, as it on that way would stay longer; as if there through the photograph is an evidence.
What started as a sort of a street photography has moved along with me to the personal space where emotion has become more important than moment. Later on I'm trying to see behind the visible and learn to see again. Putting images together becomes a fictional story where the past and personal archive is always present but already in a changed form since the image following is in a way taken out of it's context and time-line and turns now into a subjective feeling.

The way I deal with photography is close to self therapy; photography becomes partly a tool to experience, a way of getting closer to others and yourself. It also reveals terribly.
I photograph little cuts from the everyday life that occupy me or parts of my thoughts. Often it takes a long time before that moment becomes a picture.
Working with analog media the print process is important; the darkroom process and the resulting print.

I moved from Finland in the age of 22 to Sweden where I first started to study documentary photography 98-00, the followed years in Europe. Prague and FAMU with many travels around eastern Europe, Berlin to and fro 2003-2008, Paris, Prague, Berlin, Paris constant move. Since 2009 I'm based on the west of France, my daughter Martha-Liisa was born 2011 and again the page turned and the urge to remember, understand and follow the white rabbit that run by.
