“What is a good picture? Whenever we think we have the answer, we should ask the question again and find a new answer,” says Berlin-based photographer Jörg Brüggemann. He has been photographing for years for magazines, for theater, exhibitions and books, for love, for himself, and, as he says, to save his own life.
Narrative photography for him is a constant process of knowledge about the world and being human. This workshop aims to make this process experiential and shareable. The photographer asks participants, “Bring your images, projects, concepts, thoughts and feelings. We will discuss and evaluate them according to aesthetic, semantic, ethical, sociocultural, and emotional criteria – empowering you to further develop your own photographic language.”
