5 workshops in 5 days with 5 amazing women
Photo-Berlin invites internationally renowned photoreporters and professionals working in the photography field to hold workshops in Berlin. The aim is to provide a valuable know how and a guided fieldwork experience, leading participants to produce their own photostories, documenting contemporary cultural issues related to the city of Berlin.
Why a women’s edition?
While organizing the VII Masterclass in Milan, a 7 months education program created in collaboration with Stefano de Luigi/VII Agency, Linda Ferrari and Chiara Luxardo realized that the vast majority of the Masterclass participants were women.
Most of them expressed their desire to have women references in order to undertake or continue their photography career; this is how the idea of creating an edition held by women professionals came into place. Here is a press release
