Stop just looking at the building and listen to its story. This four day workshop will focus on sharing an approach which includes much more than just taking a series of photographs of a building. Vernacular photography, research, live interviews and testimonies will be part of the project which will aim at bringing to light the way a building in the center of Athens with a historical dimension or a symbolical value interacts with its environment, with the people who had been part of its making, but also with all those who will be/are influenced by its presence. Matteo Balduzzi, curator, and Panayiotis Lambrou, photographer, will be guiding participants in this process in order for all to detect the “roots” of the building as well as create new ones by casting a more intimate glance.

This Workshop will take place in collaboration with TransEurope Co-ordinators.

The programme:

  • Presentation of the experts’ professional career and short lecture on their work
  • Expert and peer portfolio reviews
  • Deconstruction of works
  • Focus on urban landscape; buildings – people – environment
  • Vernacular photography, research, live interviews and testimonies will be part of the project
  • Study, analysis and selection of the photographs taken

Why apply?

  • Receive guidance from international experts
