Shoot from the gut, edit with the brain.”
Anders Petersen is renowned for his intuitive and humanistic approach to photography. During this workshop participants are encouraged to enjoy a method of photography that is more involved with the subject, to move outside of the comfort zone and engage wholeheartedly with people and situations. Curiosity will lead to a heightened sense of reality that will develop greater understanding and sharpen observational skills. Consequently this will help to represent real moments, real emotions and result in photographic stories with a greater sense of honesty, within the frame of spontaneity. Berlin is the perfect city for this workshop, a creative and hedonistic metropolis.
