For Foam Fan+ members, Foam organises three photography workshops in April with the theme ‘Traces’. The photography of Henk Wildschut (1967, the Netherlands) offer insights in Calais' hard circumstances to live in, but also remind us of the ingenuity of mankind.
Everywhere around us we see visible and invisible traces people left behind, deliberately or not. Those traces can be visualized in various ways; in a documentary or aesthetical way or as social criticism. In the photography workshop Traces we look for places in the city where people affected their environment by following Wildschut’s way of thinking. During the workshop, you will be developing your own way frame these tracks.
The workshop starts with an active tour in the exhibition Henk Wildschut - Calais - From Jungle to City. Based on his work, and the work by other photographers who are fascinated by how we adapt our immediate surroundings, you will get to work in downtown Amsterdam. As you shoot, the experienced museum educator will give you tips on how to improve your photos. At the end of the workshop, all results will be reviewed and discussed in the group.
Foam provides basic compact cameras for this workshop. Of course, you are free to use your own camera if you prefer. In that case, remember to bring a fully charged battery, an empty SD card and a transfer cable. The use of your own materials is at your own risk.
