GOALS

Davide Monteleone comes back to New York with PWNY after the amazing workshop done with us back in 2012. From June 19 to June 25 2016, Davide will lead his new class in the exploration of the multiplicity of narratives that the city of New York offers, in order to build, day after day, for each student, a personal and original photo story.  In this workshop Davide will also discuss the possibility in contemporary documentary photographic practice and approaches, taking a deeper look at the long-term project practice in photography. Starting from his personal experience, Davide will give an understanding of different forms of narratives and different ways of structuring work as well as strategy to efficiently produce the project. Particular attention will be give to how ideas are born, the fundamental basis for the beginning of every project in photography.
Since ideas and concepts are crucial to the development of the documentary project, how is it possible to identify themes, motifs and issues that address and questions the societies we live in, on both the local and global level? The ability to choose “a personal distance” is a key factor to succeed in nowadays’ market of documentary photography.  To illustrate this, Davide will show his own working method, the evolution of his projects as well as other people’s projects. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the projects they have already produced or are working on and the workshop will act as a starting place for participants to identify and develop a critical perspective on creating original long term projects that can be developed beyond the workshop.

PROGRAM

✔ During this 7-day workshop, participants will be guided in the conception and realization of a personal photo project. Please come to the first session with a collection of digital or printed images of your work and some ideas for a project you will pursue during the week. After that, mornings will be group sessions devoted to reviewing and critiquing the images you shot the day before. In the afternoons, you will head into the city to further develop your project.
✔ As the week progresses, we will invite some notable New York photographers and professionals of the field as special guests, to present and discuss their work to the class.
✔ A bibliography and filmography in order to get prepared for the workshop will be sent to the participant once they are enrolled. PWNY staff will be available to help participants to get ready for the workshop.
✔ The projects realized during the workshop will be edited in a collective multimedia piece. Each participant’s project will be shown on this website after the workshop.
