FLIRT – a photographic approach towards people, venezia 5,6,7 june 2015

unnamed

 

how do I photograph people / how do I communicate my interest / how do I deal with the changes to the

original situation caused by my presence / how do I construct photographs of people / what does a person’s

photograph reveal / how do I interpret – read – photographs / …

Both the production and the interpretation of photographs are complex processes. Within the image a

subjective perception of the surrounding reality gets transformed into a personal message. This individual

statement gets subjectively interpreted by the viewer. In the knowledge of this tension I see photography as

a medium to reflect on reality. In addition, there is an inevitable and complex tangle of factors, for example

personal, social, ideological and economic, in both the construction and the interpretation of an image.

FLIRT explores possible approaches to photographic representations of people. Inspired by playful communication,

the title refers as well to the tension generated by a desire for closeness and an intuitive respect for

boundaries balanced with each other in framing a photographic encounter. To make students more sensitive

towards their own photographic intention and the precise use of visual tools are fundamental topics of this

workshop.
