An intimate and hands on workshop mixing classroom and photography in locations in the downtown area.
Kike will show us several ways how to tell a story through photography as a means of doing it. Essentially, this workshop, where there is no need for any previous experience. It is split up into teams. We will work as if we were writing a diary. All of us will learn from each other, its doesn’t matter the level. This is the opportunity for the participants to find the essence of how to tell a story. Through the workshop there will be constant references about Kike’s experiences which have been published in the Associated Press, The New York Times, National Geographic and other periodicals around the world.
