There are only twelve spaces available.
The New York-based British photographer Phillip Toledano will host a rare workshop for local creatives in Cork on Thursday, April 12th.
Entitled ‘Getting personal with personal work: developing a body of work out of your own experience’, the workshop will explore ways to make images true, and how to make them powerful for the artist and the viewer of the photograph.
For the last nine years, Phillip Toledano’s work has turned inwards towards his family.
Through Days with my Father, The Reluctant Father, When I was Six, and other projects, Toledano has learnt how to have a dialogue with himself, and to use photography as a means of making sense of the incomprehensible.
The Cork workshop students will show projects they are working on, which will be reviewed and discussed by the participants and Phillip Toledano, with the aim of assessing what the image is saying and what is being left out.
As Toledano states ‘Personal work only works when you are unafraid’.
A rare opportunity to learn from a modern master, tickets for the event will cost just €20 (including a light lunch) but they will only be offered to those who will get the most out of the afternoon.
Spaces are limited to 12 people. Applicants should forward three digital copies of their current work, a short CV and an artist statement to be considered to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Phillip Toledano’s Maybe: Life & Love shows at the Crawford Art Gallery until June 24th.
