Stephen Kelly is not only a well known reportage-photographer but also an experienced educator in workshops and lectures. Some of you already had a glimpse of his way to thread together a series and his helpful remarks of why he does it that way, in one of the street reportage workshops organized by PICZ.
Stephens approach is quiet and considered when working on a reportage: “I work in confined spaces. It may be one street or within the walls of one building, but every wall, stairwell, room, back alley is massively important to me. This approach makes you as the photographer slow down, both mentally and physically. You need to think creatively, have control, be patient and wait for the right moments…it’s slow journalism“.
Saturday, 13th of April will be dedicated solely to photographing in the streets, with Stephen on hand to give immediate feedback and guidance. We will use an area near Helvetiaplatz / Bäckeranlage as our reportage playground, where we will create a series of unique and playful images of street life in Zurich.
On Sunday 14th, we will work in a room at QZ Aussersihl (Bäckeranlage) to put together our stories from the pictures we’ve made and/or from another series of pictures each participant may want to work on. Being a proficient editor of your own work and learning how you might best present a series of images to your audience is an incredibly important element of being a photographer.
More info and detailed schedule will follow.
