Holiday Special: Berlin-Booklet
Inspired by the exhibitions of Anastasia Samoylova and William Eggleston, the participants will be introduced to the photographic varieties of street photography. Around Bahnhof Zoo, they will explore the countless subjects that the inner-city landscape has to offer. With a sharpened eye, they explore and photographically research to find the right moment for a successful shot. Whether it is a street scene, a play of light and shadow, passers-by or architecture – the young photographers determine the subject themselves.
The collected photographic snapshots of the city then serve as a basis for putting together associative pairs of pictures. With the help of printouts, a selection is first made haptically and pairs of images are sought in which visual connections and associative moments arise. Photoshop and InDesign are then used to implement on the computer what was tried out with paper and scissors. At the end, a small booklet with the participants own pictures is created, which they can take home.
