Street Photography | Beginners, Advanced
Urban spaces offer an infinite wealth of details, moments and things. Even Palermo’s millennia-old face knows many facets and hides inconspicuous treasures. Exposed to time and environment, the city is constantly changing – be it through us humans or nature and climate. How can we navigate through the rich waves of information and how do we decide what to focus on? Does photography help us to repeatedly question our perception and view of the world?
During the workshop with Berlins street photographer Torsten Schumann, we explore the streets of Palermo as a “Wunderkammer” and discover the city in a more personal and fascinating way. Leaving free space for coincidences and our intuition, we experiment playful in the streets. Also the lecture and discussions about already existing works, will help us to explore individual photographic strategies. Focusing on basic elements, we examine how photographic details allow us to get conclusions about a larger context, or maybe even provoke it. Can we transmit our subjective image of the world by bringing together or emphasizing things consciously through purposeful “omissions”? The aim of the workshop is to strengthen the trust in one’s own view and to interpret Palermo’s urban spaces in a unique and new way.
