An Exploration of the Self workshop is an open laboratory meditating on the notion of ‘home’.
«For much of my life home has been an ideal place far away from my reach. Together we will artistically explore what home means. This is a unique experience with special and delicate emotional nuances for each of us. It is an exploration of the self. Having lived between East and West for much of my life, home conjures an unsettling feeling of rootlessness for me. I am constantly searching for a sense of belonging in unfamiliar places. But home is not just a place – it can be a feeling, a person, a memory, a taste or even a dream.
This workshop is an opportunity for you to look beyond photography as a still image platform and engage with a multilayered, experimental approach featuring dimensions of sound, video, drawing, writing and other forms of artistic expression you wish to marry with your images. I am excited by the feeling a photograph leaves with me much more than the story it tells. Needless to say, this will not be a workshop where you will tell stories. It is not true to my own experience working with photography. I approach my projects loosely. I prefer to be lost in the wilderness. It is from this sense of anxiety, curiosity and often frustration that I find my way. I will encourage you to be inspired by your encounters rather than follow a map. Do not dictate an agenda based on predetermined research or a clear sense of direction. To enjoy and succeed in this workshop, you must let go and embrace that you will feel lost before you find your footing.
