Description

Join Jérôme Sessini’s shooting workshop in Tirana and Bajram Curri in Albania, where the Magnum photographer made his first coverage of a conflict.

Back in 1998, Kosovo, which shares borders with Albania, entered a conflict in which ethnic Albanians opposed ethnic Serbs and the government of  Yugoslavia. Jérôme Sessini, a young photographer at that time, spent a few months there reporting the secession and its impact on the population.

As part of Inside>>Out, you are invited to re-visit this area of Albania. On the first day of the workshop, after his and Mark Power lectures, you will board a bus bound to Bajram Curri with your fellow participants. Shooting alongside Jérôme Sessini, you will create a photo essay of your choice relating to Albania’s history and the idea of remembrance. A public slideshow will be organised on the last night on the streets of Tirana, as part of the wider Inside>>Out public program.

This workshop offers:

  • Tools to develop a photographic project with time and geographical constraints
  • Guidance on how to work on a historical subject
  • Your work screened during a public event
  • Group crits with Jérôme Sessini
  • Lectures by Jérôme Sessini, Mark Power and Enri Canaj

Takeaways:

By the end of the workshop, participants should…  

  • Have a thoroughly planned and critically informed self directed body of photographic work
  • Be able to demonstrate creative, visual, and technical abilities
  • Critically analyze photography within both historical and theoretical frameworks
  • Engage in informed, critical self-reflection and the ability to critique peers
  • Demonstrate an understanding of editing photographs for different outputs
  • Develop an understanding of the variety of ways in which photography can function as a means of personal expression and as a documentary record
