- creating photo-essays
with Linda B. Engelberth
19 Nov. - 24 Nov. 2019
SAGA, Inderøy, Norway
Join Norwegian/ Algerian documentary-photographer, artist, and member of VII Photo Agency, Linda Bournane Engelberth on a workshop that is crafted to make you a better storyteller - using your talent in photography, and connecting your voice to your images. Our goal is for you to leave this workshop with a well-crafted photo story and a clearer vision as storyteller.
Photography is one of the most powerful tools in the world. It speaks every language, and can connect people from different nationalities, age, religion, background and so on. It can shed a light on a social issue, it can tell a personal story, it can engage people to change their views, it can connect people from every part of the world.
This workshop is about you becoming a better storyteller - using your talent in photography, and connecting your voice to your images. What is your story, how do you tell it, who is it for, and how will you present it.
Our instructor Linda Bournane Engelberth will present her work and show several projects and talk about different approaches in storytelling. You can choose any topic for your story. It can be a personal project, portraiture, art, documentary, landscape or other genres.
During the workshop you will be mentored to improve your own voice, learn how to get close to the subject and how to build your story. You will get one-on-one sessions with Linda, but we will also work together in a group, to get feedback from your fellow participants and connect as fellow storytellers.
Linda will collaborate closely with each participant as you work on your own individual stories, with a strong emphasis on the storytelling and editing processes.
Our goal is for you to leave this workshop with a well-crafted photo story and a clearer vision as storyteller.
