Learn to Connect With Your Subjects In New Les Rencontres d’Arles Workshop


Jonathan Torgovnik, photographer and MediaStorm contributor, will teach “An emphasis on the ‘other,’” during the 2013 international festival of photography, Les Rencontres d’Arles. The week-long workshop will dive into the unspoken language and emotional connections between photographer, subject, and environment.

Participants will navigate through the intimate and, at times, intense process of creating a successful portrait, with an emphasis on photographing people in their personal environments, in and around their homes, workplaces, or on the street.

Registration is available online.

About the Workshop

Date: July 8-13, 2013
Location: Arles (Provence, France)
Fee: 780€
Summary: Participants will learn how to meet the challenges of establishing a deep connection with subjects in a relatively short period of time.

Course content includes:

  • Introduction to photography as a profession
  • One-to-one interview and definition of a photographic project
  • Analysis of the participant’s earlier work and assessment of his/her level
  • Daily photography sessions
  • Individual and group analysis of the previous day’s work
  • Selection of photos with a view to creating a series
  • Discussion of possible outlets
  • One-to-one final interview
