The Hanoitimes - From November 20 to 26, visit Photo Project Workshop with Zhuang Wubin at Heritage Space to the understanding of photography.
Have you always wanted to make a photo project? Do you wish to experience the process of conceptualising, producing, editing and presenting your work? Do you want to deepen your understanding of photography? As a mean of exploiting and expressing yourself? As an Artistic practice and development? As an professional photographer?
Hanoians enjoy Photo Project Workshop with Zhuang Wubin.
If your answer is yes to any of these questions, this workshop is meant for you. This seven-day workshop is for photographers and artists who wish to develop photo projects. You can propose projects that are documentary or conceptual in nature. You can develop a new project or pursue an ongoing work. This is not a technical workshop. The focus is on conceptualisation, execution, editing and presentation.
This workshop is open to participants of any nationality. There is a simple pre-selection process. Please send the URL or PDF of your work (in ENGLISH) to indicate your interest. If you already have an idea of what you wish to create during the workshop, please let me know.
