15/12 -> 16/12
Workshop 'A Personal Vision'
George Georgiou and Vanessa Winship

The workshop will look and discuss each participant’s projects, from a work in progress to a finished work that needs to be fine-tuned. Through discussion and group critiques we will look at each photographers original intentions and vision.

Working intuitively, we will edit together, in order to develop the project both in its visual language and its concept, seeking successes and failures and possible solutions, methods and approaches to progress your photography to the next level.


With the experience of working side by side for 25 years, but having found a way to develope our own personal vision within the same territory, we will pass on our experiences and how we develop our projects.


A public presentation of our work will take place on Friday 14th of December at 7:00 p.m., so participants are encouraged to also be present.
