Workshop - How to read a photograph: critical questions to ask for deeper understanding with Marco Bok
In today’s complex post truth world it’s even more important than ever before to get to the heart of an issue and understand the meaning behind an image. Marco will encourage you to get to the bottom of the intent behind photographs. He will show you by analysing, deconstructing and examining them to understand whether they’re manipulated, and if so why, and how to get your own message across in your photography.
