RIMA is inviting people from all over the world living in Malta to apply for a series of artistic workshops in digital and film photography. The workshops will provide applicants with the opportunity to refine their abilities while listening to the experience of three great photographers and their varied and passionate approach to the art of photography.
The digital photography workshop will be led by the Italian and Ivorian photographers Mario Badagliacca and Mohamed Keita, while the film photography workshop will take place under the supervision of the photographer Zvezdan Reljić. Both workshops will be held at the Ede Books Studio, Sliema. Applicants will be given the option to apply for either one of the workshops, or both.
The digital workshop aims to give the participants a comprehensive experience of the art and technique of digital photography, including technical aspects (shutter speed, exposure…), framing, archiving and post-production, while also taking into consideration the ethical dimension of utilising this medium.
The film workshop, on the other hand, will provide an overall understanding of the art and technique of black & white film photography, film processing and darkroom printing.
At the end of the workshop, the participants will not only gain a sound technical understanding of the process of photography as a whole, but they will delve into the value of photography as an instrument of storytelling and how the medium could serve as a platform for personal expression and artistic pursuits. Each participant will be given the opportunity to complete a photographic assignment.
The photographs taken by the participants will eventually undergo a selection process, as some of them could be eligible to form part of the RIMA exhibition, taking place in late 2018.
Applicants should send a motivational letter via email to [email protected] to provisionally reserve a place. Applicants should kindly specify whether you’d like to participate in just one of the workshops, or both of them. Alternatively you can call this contact number: 77 09 40 26
Since the number of places is limited, the participants will be selected by the organizers on the strength of their motivational letter. The deadline for the submission is on 1st March 2017.
Kindly note that, should there be a high number of applicants, the dates of the film workshop are likely to change and can be decided on the basis of personal appointment. Moreover, note the workshop is exclusively open to foreigners who have experienced exile and/or migration.
