The urban space in everyday perception often only acts as a scenery for the necessary or voluntary, for the targeted or aimless, the planned or spontaneous movements within the space.

This workshop directs the glance on the urban space as a backdrop and how this space also influences behaviour and our senses.

Photographing during the workshop will take place within a clearly outlined areal in Frankfurt am Main. The participants can choose between various suggestions; those with local knowledge can optionally decide on the environment, which they prefer to work in.
