Join Phil Borges, photographer Amanda Koster and the amazing children of Takaungu for an unforgettable workshop in digital storytelling. In this workshop our goal is to get past the “grab shot” and find a way to use our photography to creat images that tap into the spirit of those we photograph, while at the same time imparting meaningful skills to the communities we work in.
“We had an immediate connection with the children, and had access to their community in ways I never thought possible. It is such a gift to feel welcomed and connected to the people in a place you’re visiting, and to combine travel, photography and volunteering.” Karen Church, Tibetan Children’s Village Workshop, Dharamsala, India
Building effective commmunity relationships in remote and beautiful locations is the hallmark of Bridges workshops. The strength of Kenya’s coastal history, its trading ports, its centuries-old Arab-Muslim influence, and its beaches make this Bridges workshop a rare chance to explore the rich landscape of the Kenyan Coast. You will work with internationally renowned photographers and students in the local community, taking your personal work to the next level while empowering a new generation of storytellers.
You will challenge your photographic skills in a new environment, develop familiarity with digital imaging at all levels, and build meaningful relationships with the communities you visit by engaging students in their own documentary work. Opportunities for remarkable image making will present themselves every day of this two-week workshop.
Dates: October 5-21, 2004
