Free documentary photography course for refugees

A short-course in Documentary Photography for refugees and asylum-seekers living in London will be held this month and in August.

The free course will answer the following questions: What is Documentary Photography? How can photographing my life change the way I perceive the world? If Documentary Photography is all about representing the world objectively, what role does the photographer play?

The course is funded by the Julian Trevelyan Foundation and the Royal College of Art.

It will consist of six sessions, each an hour and a half long, in which a number of activities will take place, including critics of each other’s images, discussions about critical photography issues, and field trips to exhibitions and museums.

There is no experience required at all, and each participant will be provided with a camera to use, which they can keep once the course has finished to continue taking photographs.

At the end of the course the organisers and participants will work together on a small exhibition and publication, a copy of which will be given to each participant.

There are only eight places available, to book your place or to ask questions, please contact Nick Warner by dialling 07881457704 or sending an email to [email protected]
