Our friends from The Hinterlands, Rebecca Harley and Mike Lusmore, are running two workshops in Devon this summer. Please check out the info below:
“Last year we held a residential photofilm workshop with the wonderful duckrabbit . It was a brilliant experience and once again will we be working alongside duckrabbit for the second year running another photofilm workshop from 27th May – June 1st 2012.
We are also organising another workshop which will focus on developing your photographic style and finding your voice as a documentary photographer and storyteller. The Photographic Immersion workshop with Brooklyn based photographer and documentarian Brenda Ann Kenneally will run from 24th-29th June 2012. It’s a small residential workshop with only 10 places held at Blackdown Yurts in Devon. Participants will stay in yurts, eat great home cooked food and get one-to-one support from Brenda about their work.
Brenda has photographed and reported on American families over the past two decades. She has been recognised and supported by the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, the Mother Jones Documentary Fund, the Alicia Patterson Foundation and the Soros Criminal Justice Fellowship and her book Money, Power, Respect won the Best Photojournalism Book at Pictures of The Year in 2006.
In the past five years her work has looked at the coming of age in post-industrial America and work from her Upstate girls project won a 2009 World Press Photo Award and her multimedia reporting on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina won her a Webby Award.
It’s Brenda’s first workshop in the UK and it will be a really special week. If you would like to read a little more about the workshop, or want to book a place have a look at our website at www.thehinterlands.co.uk. You can keep in touch with us on twitter at @the_hinterlands or we are on facebook too.”
