Photographic Compositing Urban Space – Helen Saunders
2 day workshop – Sat 12th and Sun 13th October
First Floor – 183-185 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3UW
Application details below

One of the great joys of working with talented artists is the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of their artistic intentions and practice. In association with the Leap-Second exhibition, we’re delighted to be able to offer a limited number of places on a 2-day workshop with Helen Saunders

The way Helen’s work combines still photography and moving image positions it in what we feel to be a critical point in discussions about photography’s role in visual practice. Helen uses composite imaging to deconstruct and reconfigure transitional spaces within the architectural environment, creating images that blur the line between the real and imagined.

As we’ve posted previously, Helen will be taking a select group of participants through her practice, looking at the conceptual process behind the creation of an image, the identification of appropriate subject matter and the techniques involved in capturing, constructing and refining the final image.

Numbers will be limited to a maximum of 8 participants to ensure that Helen is able to work with people on a one-to-one basis, and we’ll be asking applicants to submit a short paragraph about why they wish participate in the workshop and an example of their work to assist us in choosing the final participants.
