The workshop will explore how imagination and process can build connections between personal and social/political photographic work. This will be done through discussion, examples and a brief photographic assignment. Participants will consider how idea development and sequence structuring are interlinked, and will participate in a group review of the sequence they make in the workshop. There will also be a demonstration of Malde’s workflow from the planning for field work to exhibiting a printed sequence.
