Jason Eskenazi, the photographer responsible for the acclaimed photo book Wonderland: A Fairy Tale of the Soviet Monolith, is leading a photography workshop in Pafos and there is only a few spaces left!
The four-day workshop begins on March 25th with six-hour sessions each day through March 28th. The course will explore your photographic personal journey as it manifests itself in visual metaphors found in the physical and tangible world. Eskenazi will help guide you on your journey from project proposal, finding funding, creating a book dummy and finding a publisher. The workshop proposes to search out the emotional resonances of your project and put you on the right road.
The workshop also consists of photo critiques and offers to develop a complete vision for your project from inception to finished project. This special program will look into how your subject matter determines the treatment and design of the book you want to make, while gaining insight from other art forms including painting and writing.
This is a very special opportunity to work with a very, very talented photographer. Jason Eskenazi is a Guggenheim Fellow, Fulbright Scholar and winner of the Dorothea Lange Prize. He is also the founder of Red Hook Editions and Dog Food magazine. More information on Eskenazi can be found at www.jasoneskenazi.com
