Creative photography workshop led by Camille Zakharia
Time Out Bahrain staff
If you’re a keen snapper who still uses print or if, like us, you happen to be old enough to remember the days before digital cameras when you spent hours pasting treasured memory pictures into albums, then left them to gather dust in the attic, this one’s for you.
The Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Center for Culture and Research is running a workshop ‘Photocollage/Montage – An Introduction’ with prominent artist and photographer Camille Zakharia over a seven week period from mid April to early June 2012.
The workshop costs BD100 and is open to everyone but places are limited to just 12 and participation will be by selection with the deadline for submissions on March 31.
While participants will be able to use different materials, they will be encouraged to incorporate their own photographs and venture outside the traditional representation of photography coming up with found images, boxes and any other material that may be of interest to them.
There’ll also be a demonstration, discussion sessions and chances to present the work in progress and get feedback from other participants.
Candidates interested in taking the workshop need to submit five samples of recent works (jpg format 72 dpi, longer side not exceeding 20cm) with a brief statement of why they are interested to firstname.lastname@example.org For submissions or any questions, please contact the Shaikh Ebrahim Center on email@example.com or call 17 322 549.
