A Photographic Exchange: Workshop with Manuel Vason
Folkestone Downs – meet at The Brewery Tap, 53 Tontine Street / Sat 11 & Sun 12 Aug, 10am – 5pm
Over two days you are invited to practice photography as a methodology to communicate and connect with the ash trees of a small forest near Folkestone.
Instead of using photography as an observatory tool that replicates reality from distance, you will explore the medium as a stage on which to enact a correspondence between photographer and plants. Using intuition and imagination, you will search for individual ways to interact with the trees and investigate creative ways to document those actions with photography. The workshop is open to anybody willing to explore the ash trees as companions for a new photographic and performative adventure.
