Workshop: The Photographic Essay

Sunday 27 January 11:00 - 16:30 at Jewish Museum London

Sunday 10 February 11:00 - 16:00 at The Photographers' Gallery

Organised in collaboration with Jewish Museum London, this practical two-part workshop led by Stuart Freedman is centred on the traditional narrative photo essay, focusing on how images can tell stories but also place the visual essay within its historical context.

Participants will develop their own work, learning skills of essay construction - from research to execution and the recording of the everyday within a humanist tradition. In the first session Freedman will present his own reportage projects and stories, offering clear and supportive advice in constructing your own. Participants will identify and create their own work inbetween sessions, returning for feedback and direction on editing and sequencing.

A good working knowledge of photography, your own camera and imaging software is encouraged, as is an interest in the practice and development of photo documentary work. The workshop also includes a tour of ‘Roman Vishniac: Rediscovered’ at The Jewish Museum London.

Stuart Freedman is a photographer and writer who has, for more than twenty-five years, covered stories across the world for publications such as Life, Geo, Time, Der Spiegel, Newsweek and The Sunday Times Magazine. He is the recipient of numerous international awards and is a member of Panos Pictures in London.
