The Workshop


“Literature is rich and photography is poor. What is interesting is that when you take something that is poor you have to invest in it to make it rich. While if something is rich, everything is done.” - Klavdij Sluban

Sluban develops a rigorous and coherent body of work, nourished by literature, never inspired by immediate and sensational events, making him one of the most interesting photographers of his generation. He questions the contemporary world throughout a specific photographic writing, dark yet poetic, working on long term projects in countries, islands, prisons, where time and space are condensed. The Balkans, the Black Sea, the Baltic Sea, former Yugoslavia, former Soviet Union, the Caribbean, Central America, the Antarctic, China, Japan... can be read as many successive steps of an in-depth interpretation of the encountered reality.

Participants will be chosen to spend 6 days working closely with Klavdij. Everyday sessions will be made of taking pictures individually, as well as editing together with Klavdij, either in individual or group meetings. This workshop in Athens will be their chance to develop an already existing body of work and push participants to make new responses to their personal project and identify their own unique visual language.

During the 6-day workshop students will alternate between taking photographs and discussing work, they will be attending an intense daily review and editing process.

The workshop is open up to a maximum of 15 participants, who will be selected through a combination of the merit of their portfolio and their personal statement.

Klavdij Sluban is aiming to work with young emerging photographers around the world, in order to support and encourage them we decided to offer a discount at the final price of the workshop for participants under 30 years old.

Athens, a chaotic city with vibrant art scene, can offer many alternatives to photographers, as it can turn out to be a very unpredictable place. For participants coming from abroad Athens gives the possibility to be used as a space to project themselves, and for Athens residents, it’s a chance to discover a new perception of the city.

For the last night of the workshop, a public projection of the works will be held at Void.

The way of the Photobook
- BUILDING IT, WHY AND HOW -

7-DAY WORKSHOP WITH Akina Books
At Void

The Workshop

Every photobook is a self-contained universe with its own set of rules. A series of
photographs can be a starting point for the process of creating a book - editing,
sequencing, design and choice of materials are all opportunities to add new layers
of meaning to a body of work. During the genesis of a photobook, ambiguities and
clashes, unexpected juxtapositions and riddles will emerge, revealing the
pleasures and pains of visual language. Every single picture will gain a different
meaning when placed in a broader perspective of the book as a whole.

The aim of this Photobook 101 is to build a dummy, covering all the steps of the
process through knowledge, creativity and chance. Editing, sequencing, design,
binding and printing techniques as well as marketing and funding tips will be

disclosed through a hands-on approach and case studies. Techniques of non-
linear narrative, visual language and production will be explored as a way to

conceive the potential of a photographic project and re-imagine it in a new light.

We believe in the photobook as an object to crease, love and collect – a total that
is more than the sum of its parts.

Language: English

http://www.akinabooks.com

 

Prior requirements/preparations:

  • Participants should have a photographic project in an advanced state, which they want to turn into a publication.
  • You will need to bring a pre-selection of pictures (50-100 small prints) from the project to start editing and high-res files which will be used for the printing.
  • A laptop with a layout program, such as InDesign, and the basic skills to use it are a plus.
  • Any additional material you might want to use for the book is welcome: text, specialty papers, fabric etc.

Antoine d’Agata

“Antoine D’Agata is a contentious character in the worlds of photography and art. (...) His work’s brutal and self-destructive content has a habit of upsetting people.” - Vice Magazine
“The work of french photographer Antoine D’Agata examines the fragile, often merciless, spaces between reality and its hegemonic interpretation. Drawn from his own physical immersion into global underworlds of prostitution, drug addiction, and violence, d’Agata’s intimately graphic retrievals are the product of new photo-documentary.” - Flaunt Magazine

“Photography is not a way to look at the world, but a way to live the world, to take position, to be of the world, in such a way that everything stands for something.” - Antoine d’Agata

Antoine d’Agata’s workshops are known to be a life changing experience. His intense practice has a catalytic impact in the understanding of one’s own work.

During the “Into the Void with Antoine d’Agata” workshop in Athens between 3 and 8 of March 2017, 15 participants from 10 different countries, were chosen to spend 6 days working closely with Antoine during the day and taking photographs by night.

Ekaterina Balaban (Russia), Dusana Baltic (Croatia), Magnus Cederlund (Sweden), Alexandre Charro (Brazil), Celine Croze (Morocco), Penny Demertzi (Greece), Hanna Lindgren (Sweden), Jens Lyk-Jensen (Denmark), Argyro Galani (Greece), Justin Ma (Australia), Madalin Marienut (Romania), Georgia Ponirakou (Greece), Danai Simou (Greece), Penelope Thomaidi (Greece), Laima Vainiņa (Latvia)

All of them developed a personal project under his guidance and pushed their photographic and personal limits, reaching a remarkable results.

During the workshop's last evening, a public exhibition of the resulting projects was held at Void together with a book signing of Antoine’s book “Cidade de Pedra” (Void. 2016), with an overwhelming attendance.
