Brooklyn Photo workshop
October 06, 2017 - October 09, 2017
Birgit Krippner’s and Harald Claessen’s First New York Workshop
Brooklyn, New York
Friday, October 6th, 2017 until Monday, October 9th
It is with great pleasure that Birgit Krippner and Harald Claessen announce their first New York photo workshop.
Over the years we have been approached by so many people asking us both to hold a workshop in New York. Well finally, following the success of our workshop in Tokyo and Trans Siberian Adventure, we can confirm a workshop in New York beginning 6 October.
Birgit Krippner having lived in New York for eight years, and continuing to visit regularly since relocating to New Zealand, has a deep knowledge of the City. She loves to explore with her camera the evolving and dynamic communities in Brooklyn - which are really the heart of her New York and (fortunately) are often overlooked by tourists. One of this workshop’s highlights and points of difference will be having participants look beyond Manhattan and discover some of these authentic New York communities themselves.
One day will be spend in Coney Island. This is where Harald spent a significant amount of time in 2016. Subsequently his Coney Island project got published in acclaimed Burn Magazine.
The aim of the workshop for Birgit and Harald is to share their unique views and experiences, so that each participant is able to find their own distinctive voice for telling stories through their photographs. Participants will be on assignment for a significant portion of the course, with the emphasis on learning by doing and thereby getting maximum benefit out of their time with Harald and Birgit. Whilst the course is intended to be challenging and to make maximum use of the time, the aim is to create a positive and social environment which supports creativity and risk taking. The final day of the workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to present their favourite images captured during the course.
