ISSP Starptautiskās meistarklases dalībnieki - 22 fotogrāfi no 15 pasaules valstīm - gada garumā veidoja personīgos projektus pasaulē atzītu ekspertu vadībā, pētot sev interesējošās parādības vai tēmas un tiekoties meistarklases sesijās Kuldīgā un Sicīlijā. Vācu fotogrāfa Pītera Bjalobžeska vadītajā darbnīcā "Pārmaiņu izjūta" tapa projekti par personiskām, sociālām un politiskām pārmaiņām mūsdienu pasaulē. Britu mākslinieces Klēras Strendas un kuratora, mākslinieka un redaktora Gordona Makdonalda eksperimentālajā darbnīcā “Atbildes uz jautājumiem un jautājumi par atbildēm" tika veidoti darbi, kas rotaļīgā veidā – caur jautājumiem, eksperimentiem un diskusijām – pārtulkoja idejas vizuālā valodā. Noslēdzoties pēdējai meistarklases darbnīcai Kuldīgā, dalībnieki pirmo reizi prezentē gada laikā radītās fotogrāfiju sērijas, video darbus, grāmatas, māla skulptūras un citus objektus.
The participants of the ISSP International Masterclass - 22 artists and photographers from 15 countries - spent a year working on their personal projects under the guidance of experienced mentors. The work was created under two thematic lines - "A Sense of Change", exploring how changes in the physical, political or psychological landscape can be represented in contemporary photographic practice, and "Answering Questions and Questioning Answers", an experimental class centered on ideas and translating them into visual language. During the year, three mentorship meetings were held in Kuldīga and Favara (Sicily). To conclude the final session in Kuldīga, the photographic series, video works, book dummies, clay objects and other items created during the year are being presented for the first time.
Just a reminder: the deadline for the ISSP 2010 Applications is 10 May 2010 as announced and will not be prolonged. We will be accepting applications till 24:00 Monday, 10th of May. Any applications arriving later will only be considered for the Waiting list, if at all.
Ps. We are already very excited about the amazing collection of applications that have already arrived (by now from 28 countries, 4 continents)! We wish you all good luck and are looking forward for the selection process!
We all try again and are looking forward to host Aaron Shuman in Riga this weekend, provided no more volcano surprises coming up. The lecture “Whatever Was Splendid: New American Photographs” will take place at kim? at 19:00 on Saturday 1 May 2010.
Hey hey! We are pleased to announce that the applications for the International Summer School of Photography 2010 are officially open. The deadline for applications is 10 May 2010. We will accept 60 students in total this year.
One small note! - our newly introduced on-line Application form still refuses to make friends with Safari browser, so problems with uploading photos there. Thus you will be on safer side if you use any other browser than Safari if you want to apply immediately. We are working on this problem, so hopefully everything works everywhere soon!
And of course, we are looking forward to seeing your applications!
And please, spread the news :)
