NOOR photographer Pep Bonet (*1974) will lead this workshop aimed for photographers (and people working with photography) with a good understanding of photographic practice who would like to learn more how to develop and manage long-term documentary photography projects. Using his own projects and experience as tangible reference, Pep Bonet will address project conception, preproduction and project dissemination - with the goal to help participants develop and execute their own impactful and innovative documentary photo projects. The results of the practical assignments given to the participants on day one will be discussed on the second day.
The workshop will be held in English.
