The workshop Program:

  1. The link between the shutter, the speed and the sensitivity … and space, time and consciousness. To understand and integrate this relation allows the camera to become the natural prolongation of our self.
  2. The essential message of a photography is invisible to our eyes. Either an idea or a sentiment, where to find it in a photography and how to read a photography.
  3. Henry Cartier-Bresson and the decisive moment. How to capture in a blink the essential of a photography. The need to look without try to recognize.
  4. Making a photography universal. The challenge for the photographer to be express beyond his personality. The keys of the real art.
  5. Subjectivity and objectivity. Digital manipulations and Photoshop, is it legitimate? The need for the photographer to be a revolutionary in is time.
  6. The freedom from the technical complexity: using single focal lenses to gain more freedom. Concepts of freedom and choice.
  7. Being a photographer, a responsibility and a way of life.
