Talk by Newsha TavakolianDate & Time: Monday 27 / 10 / 2014 - 7:00pm

Join Newsha Tavakolian for her artist talk at CAP on October 27, 2014 at 7:00 pm, in tandem with the Sacred Paths exhibition, where her work is exhibited alongside that of twelve other artists. She will share how she was forced to transform her work from  traditional photojournalism to conceptual photography in order to be able to continue working. Her discussion will also explore photography’s place within the family, personal history and memory. She will impart the relationship her family has with the powerful artistic and historical medium, beginning with how it enchanted her grandfather as a young man, but was promptly rejected by his family members as an unacceptable hobby, and more recently, how she saw rare, resurfaced photographs taken by her great uncle, and the impact that experience had on Tavakolian and her understanding of him.

Workshop by Tamara Abdulhadi
Visual Storytelling

Dates: 29/10/2014 - 3/11/2014
Contemporary Art Platform / Studio Space

In photojournalism, the story is everything. In this one-week intensive workshop you will become a visual storyteller and collaborate with photographer Tamara Abdulhadi to utilize documentary photography as a powerful means of communication and representation of social issues. The participants will choose their own subject / story, then in the four class sessions they will be able to make their stories come to life in the editing room. Please bring any photos and photo stories you have made in the past to share during the first class!

Tamara Abdulhadi is an internationally exhibited artist and photojournalist who is interested in social justice and deconstructing stereotypes. She has worked as a photojournalist and photo editor at Reuters and the New York Times and her work has been published in The Guardian and The Wall Street Journal. She co-founded Rawiya, a collective of photographers from the Middle East.
