In 2011 The Hinterlands held their first residential photofilm workshop in Devon, UK with the wonderful duckrabbit and it was a brilliant experience. So this year we decided to do it all over again and we will we be working alongside duckrabbit for the photofilm workshop from 27th May – June 1st 2012. We made a little film of last year’s event to give people a taste of what to expect and you can watch it here.
We are also organising another residential week which will focus on developing your photographic style and finding your voice as a documentary photographer and storyteller. The Photographic Immersion workshop with Brooklyn based photographer and documentarian Brenda Ann Kenneally will run from 24th-29th June 2012. It’s a small residential workshop, with only 10 places and will be held at Blackdown Yurts in Devon, UK. Participants will stay in yurts, eat tasty home cooked food and get one-to-one support from Brenda about their work.
Brenda has photographed and reported on American families over the past two decades. She has been recognised and supported by the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, the Mother Jones Documentary Fund, the Alicia Patterson Foundation and the Soros Criminal Justice Fellowship and her book Money, Power, Respect won the Best Photojournalism Book at Pictures of The Year in 2006.
In the past five years her work has looked at the coming of age in post-industrial America and work from her Upstate girls project won a 2009 World Press Photo Award and her multimedia reporting on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina won her a Webby Award.
It’s Brenda’s first workshop in the UK and it promises to be a really special week. If you would like to read a little more about the workshop take a look at our website at www.thehinterlands.co.uk. You can keep in touch with us on twitter at @the_hinterlands or on facebook.
