This workshop focuses on building a series of images around Bologna and its inhabitants. There is a strong emphasis on engaging with and making photographic portraits of subjects and locations that are either unfamiliar or have a narrative component.
We will cover the construction of engaging portraits, the figure/ground relationship, the use of creative perspectives and the decisive acuity required for spontaneous portraiture.
The workshop’s main objective is to provide students with a technical and conceptual fluency that they may apply within their own practice.
We will begin with a brief discussion of students’ portfolios (and a prior assignment), during which each student will receive personalized feedback and exercises for improvement. We will study and discuss the precedent of successful portrait and place photographers, deconstructing varied examples to further their own work. Renaldi will also lead an excursion on location during which students will be encouraged to approach and photograph people spontaneously.
Students are encouraged to break through the boundaries between themselves and their subjects as they work on their own project over the course of this intensive weekend workshop.
The workshop is held in English, but a translator is available for those who need assistance.
Yes, if you are a student or a professional who has a strong interest in portraiture in relationship with places and things.
