ex-Artis 'Home' photography project

Earlier this year, Paphos again made its mark in the photography world with its Months Of Photography Paphos programs. Now, Paphos will once more be the site of yet another great photo program which will result in a catalog and an exhibition in Pafos in December 2017.

‘HOME’ is an ongoing photographic project organized by the ex-Artis Cultural Association in Cyprus and is based on the collaboration of photographers from different cultural orientations under the guidance of talented specialists of photography. The project started on the 27th of June 2017 in Drousia, a village in the Pafos district in Cyprus, as a residence and workshop for 5 days. Twelve photographers had the opportunity to learn from two experts of photography: Jason Eskenazi (USA) and Achilles Nasios (Sweden) who introduced them into a dialogue and a process of self-awareness, linked to their cultural expertise, to re-define the idea of ‘home’. Photographers from Pafos, Limasol, Nicosia, Bucharest, Patra and Thessaloniki are participating in this project. They are members of three photography collectives: BULBphotos, CPS-Pafos Branch and Fotodos. The project is funded by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus.

Brussels Street Photography Festival Logo

Introduction

Just over the horizon, past the summer months, there’s a street photography event that’s not to be missed. Ladies and gentlemen, an Open Call is underway for the second edition of the Brussels Street Photography Festival (BSPF)!

The Brussels Street Photography Festival (BSPF) is a cultural project whose objective is to promote street photography as an urban research tool, a form of cultural communication and a visual art. Inspired by Brussels’ urban landscape, the main ambition is to provide an international platform that looks at Brussels through the fresh eyes of its citizens and engaged photographers. The festival will take place on October 6-8 across several locations in Brussels.

Jason Eskenazi

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.
