The workshop will explore different possibilities of staged photography. Starting with Canadian artist Jeff Wall’s quote, ‘I begin by not photographing’, the workshop will focus on various processes and practices of ‘Staging Situations’. Divided into three chapters: Constructed Narrative, Performing for the Camera and Stranger than Fiction, the workshop will have participants work with various historical and contemporary interventions, from tableau vivant to self-portraits.
During the workshop, participants will be asked to produce one single image in Goa. It can be based on a poem, news clipping, a short story or a historical anecdote. The workshop will also look at parallel practices in experimental cinema, performance and contemporary art alongwith discussing various methodologies, strategies and tools to understand the idea of the constructed image.
The workshop is open to photographers and artists interested in the concept and history of the staged photograph, and techniques for their creation.
