A Master Workshop with Ernesto Bazan
February 21st & 22nd early enrollment suggested
Organized by Fotovision
This will be a very intense workshop where we will explore the many aspects of bringing a group of coherent and consistent photographs together. We will learn more about the photographer’s approach, his or her framing, his or her intentions, his or her ability to discern from the flow of life in the attempt, often vain, to extract its essence. We will critically analyze several important photographic books pointing out what makes them special and also underscoring the causes of the lowering of tension within the book created by many factors among which the inclusion of less powerful images, the wrong pairing of images and bad graphic choices.
