Staged Photography pt.2The body in space

Description

During this workshop, we want to concentrate on a sharp and conscious expression achieved in a groupwork. Due to limited time, we will work quick and intense like we did last time. The main focus is set on the relation between the body and it’s surrounding space. For this reason, we work indoors, in the studio. In addition, we only work in black and white. No colors.

In reference to body and space, the studio is (almost) void. It want to use it as a room for imagination. We can think us situations or spaces without physically experience them. We create our own world in these four walls.

The studio offers a number of different spacial situations such as corners, glasswalls, narrow-closed parts and wide open, light areas, dark walls, hide-places, public and private rooms. All these attributes provide a surplus of material for an image, elaborated within the group. So the room is a very prominent player demands the “set” with people and histories. The room is the playground.

Everything is allowed within the space.
