Save the Date - Natural Phenomena

SAVE THE DATE -  2 - 9 August 2020! We are delighted to announce that the International Summer School of Photography (and Analogue Film!) will happen this year! The united ISSP and Baltic Analog Lab Summer School will take place from 2 to 9 August in Cēsis, at the Rucka Art Residency Centre. Under the theme NATURAL PHENOMENA, the summer camp will explore the fascinating natural world and its creatures around us. The participants will be invited to create their own work drawing creative inspiration and new skills from four different mini workshops (both photography and analogue film) and guest lectures and discussions with invited biologists, entomologists, environmental scientists, writers and more!

The number of participants will be limited to 30 (countries without current Covid travel restrictions), based on submitted applications.

More information and call for applications - next week!

To answer the famous question one gets later in life - where and with whom did you study - I can’t imagine ISSP students not reflecting back instantly on this amazing time of magical learning, creative abandon, intrepid risk taking - and moonlight dancing - not to mention the endless waterfalls and epiphanies of Kuldiga, the perfect location for it all. I know I would. Com’on, I was a student too!

Finally, we have a proper ISSP team portrait. Million thanks for maestro Marcos Lopez for being with us and directing this in the sports hall of Pelči castle. Don't laugh! don't laugh! experience.

ISSP is unique, its not surprising that participants apply from all over the world. One week of non-stop creativity in the middle of the forest. All made possible because of the incredible energy of the ISSP team. Special thanks to my students, it was an amazingly talented and lovely group.
