To develop the power of a story to its fullest, one must first make a selection of images and devise their sequence. How this process works and how it is influenced by different digital platforms is the topic of the lecture by picture editor Winifred Chiocchia. By using concrete examples, the audience will gain a detailed insight into her photographic selection processes and, moreover, into the various forms of close cooperation with photographers. The speaker will also address choosing images in the context of making exhibitions, when applying for awards or in the production of various media and communication channels–from print and online magazines to social media platforms and daily newspapers.
The lecture will be held in German.
