After a year-long creative break, the International Summer School of Photography (ISSP) is back with some fresh shifts in the programme! Alongside four workshops with some of the cutting edge voices in contemporary photography, we are very pleased to introduce our first ever workshop for PHOTOGRAPHY CURATORS as well as the ISSP RESIDENCY - an opportunity for individuals to work on their projects at their own pace using all the input the ISSP Campus can provide. We are excited to be back ……

ISSP 2018 took place from 28 July – 5 August 2018, featuring workshops by Jason Fulford, Lisa Barnard, Salvatore Vitale & Protick Sarker, Yumi Goto & Jan Rosseel, Natasha Christia, as well as a new on-campus ISSP Residency.
