Hope you are doing good. i am fine and doing a long term project on the effects of climate change in Bangladesh. would love to contribute some images to OPEN-i. Please keep me in the loop. Best regards,
I recently join NING because I am going to the Magnum Fremantle workshop. I would like to have some information concerning the Masters Programme in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. Is it possible to do it off campus/external? How much is it? What are the requirement?, etc..
If you have the time to give some information I would really much appreciate.
Thanks for the message. Having left academic study of photojournalism per se, these sessions fill the gaping hole wonderfully! Fantastic speakers too. I have nothing but praise for the whole open-i initiative.
One thing, I've got loads of friends in Bristol who are photograhers, but not specifically photojournalists or students of photography on formal academic courses. Is it OK to bring them in? I'm sure they'd appreciate the webinars too.
Best wishes and keep up the great work - you must be organising all the time!
thanks for your message. Will try to be there at 3.30 gmt.. I am kind of super busy with the workshop I am giving here in Beirut.. But will try my best to make it.. Sent the message to few other Middle East photographers, so I hope they will try to make it too!! Cheers, Dalia
paul, i am definitely going to make use of open-i for the upcoming race and diversity symposium.
as for prison photography, we'll keep those aspects distinctly separate or now. i have a direction and audience for the symposium. whereas, i am still trying to figure out my audience at prison photography!
