Katrin Koenning
on Narrative and Place: toward new visual imaginaries

Weekend Workshop
Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 August 2018, 10am—4pm

Over the course of two consecutive days, Katrin will guide participants along photographic thinking and exploration of our physical and emotional connection to place and environment, and to that which surrounds us. Studying a variety of narrative histories as well as theoretical and practical methodologies and challenges to land and place-based image making, the course will draw on notions of photographic practice as a ‘being-in-the-world’. Katrin will provide in-depth insight into her own working processes and influences as well as intensive portfolio reviews of each participant’s individual work.
