Did you just start working with photography or are you an amateur photographer? And do you want to learn more about photography? We invite you to participate in the workshop Expose! of the International Photo Festival Leiden. This is a practical one day workshop where you’ll work with your own camera. Get to know more about the different aspects of photography! Position, shutter speed, aesthetics, still life and street photography will all be discussed. After searching for the perfect image together, you will have the opportunity to show your results in the mini-exhibition during the International Photo Festival Leiden.
The workshop is aimed at amateur photographers that have their own camera (no phones or analog cameras). The workshop includes a tour with coffee, tea and lunch. We will finish the workshop with drinks.
The day starts with a tour of the exhibition. The participants choose a photo series on which they and the teachers will focus. This photo series serves as inspiration for the assignment. The participants will work on their own photography project which will finally be shown during an exhibition. The exhibition opens on the same day at 16.00 hrs. Friends and family are welcome to visit the exhibit.
The workshop is led by artist Jeannette Slütter and photographer Thomas Nondh Jansen. Both studied Photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Jeanette’s work was exhibited in cities such as New York, Milan and Brussels. She also organises exhibitions and works as a guest teacher at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Thomas mostly does commissioned work for newspapers and magazines such as Volkskrant Magazine, NRC Handelsblad and Het Parool. In 2016, his photographic children’s book ‘De olifant die niet wist of hij verdwaald was’ (‘The Elephant Did Not Know Whether He was Lost’) was published by Uitgeverij Leopold. Thomas works as a photography teacher at the Nederlands Fotomuseum and is an art teacher at Kunstmuseum in The Hague.
