Photographer Anna Di Prospero explores the evolution of storytelling through images, analyzing the work of important artists from the world of contemporary photography. In doing so, she aims to provide students with new tools to read, interpret, create and narrate.
Throughout the course, Di Prospero will place particular emphasis on developments in experimental photography, storytelling and on the influence of social media on perception and distortion of reality. Upon completion of the workshop, students will better understand contemporary photography and be able to develop their own ideas and narrative skills.
To elaborate and develop theoretic concepts, students will be invited to participate in simple photographic exercises to be presented and discussed during lessons. As a final project, students will present a single photograph on a theme assigned during the course.
