All About Photo is committed to bringing you the very best in photography during these difficult times. We believe that photography can be a powerful tool for helping us make sense of the world and connect with one another. If you can, continue to work, share your photography, and connect with the photographic community.
Here is a list of photographic events you can follow online to get inspiration from.

Cantor Arts Center and Anderson Collection
While there is no substitute for experiencing art in person, our team compiled a digest of digital resources to explore until we can welcome you back. We hope our Museums from Homecollection of online exhibitions, archives, recorded lectures and oral histories will convey, in some small way, the transformative power of art to help us feel united, seen and understood.
FOMU Antwerp: Present at Home
- PRESENT is closed but they made 6 films for PRESENT AT HOME.
Now that we are currently unable to visit PRESENT (you were up to 125.000 visitors, thank you!), FOMU Antwerp came up with the idea to bring PRESENT to your seat, chair, bed, bath, at home ...PRESENT AT HOME.
Starting at the beginning: 1/early work
'What were the fears and interests of young Stephan Vanfleteren? As a starting photographer, does he make choices that determine the rest of his further work?'
FOMU-guide Karolien will guide you through my life and work. Every week we will post two episodes of the tour through the exhibition PRESENT.
Stephan Vanfleteren was 24 years old when he left the offices of the belgian newspaper De Morgen - with shaking knees. As a young man he is sent to Rwanda during the horrors of the genocide. Today, Vanfleteren takes a critical look at this series. How can you depict such suffering without being sensationalised? Watch Episode 2

VII Interactive is a new way of reaching out and sharing content and information, creating dialogue, and learning from each other. We are building different platforms within the VII ecosystem, where students and clients will be able to engage directly, online with a live instructor.
We are taking our entire teaching platform online. We are designing interactive workshops and masterclasses that, while held in a virtual space, reach beyond the model of the downloadable instructional video and engage in one-to-one teaching with VII photographers and other leading teachers directly.
We are offering content that is both free and available to everyone, and also paid group classes and individual mentoring that can be fashioned to individual needs.
For many of us, the very idea of photography has become difficult or impossible in recent weeks, yet it remains a fundamental part of our lives. Social distancing, quarantine, and our anxiety for those we love might stop us from going for a stroll outside with a camera and attending a workshop, festival, or seminar. But it doesn't shut down a conversation.
