Course

EXPLORING EXPERIMENTAL PHOTOGRAPHY

During this 10-session course, you will discover everything you need to understand experimental photography. Starting from the understanding of the photosensitivity of the materials, we will make a panorama of its best-known techniques guided by respected artists of our festival. It is a theoretical-practical course designed for all those who come from analogue or digital photography and want to get an approach to experimentation and understanding of its diversity and fundamentals. It is meant as a constructive journey that the student can go through week by week. The material is pre-recorded but participants are able to get in touch with the artists to solve technical doubts. The course also provides a chat with other participants and Agora staff to accompany their learning.
