“Bosnia – Aftermath: 20 years of peace. A documentary journey”


A 5 days full-immersion workshop with photographer ZIYAH GAFIC, author of the project ‘Quest for Identity’ and Ted fellow and PAUL LOWE Course Director MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography, London College of Communication.

DOCUMENTARY STORYTELLING – In the digital age everyone is photographer. Everyone has access to the equipment that is vastly superior then what photography forefathers could even dream of. But technology doesn’t give you the set of skills and ethical guidelines needed to produce quality photography that could stand the test of time. Photography may just be the finest tool we have to tell compelling stories that our viewers will believe in. In the era of manipulation and mass production of information It is our duty to produce veritable, accurate, believable and appealing imagery.

This year Bosnia is marking pivotal date in its millennial history. Peace agreements signed in Dayton, Ohio in 1995 ended four year long bloodshed that left the country in ruins and nearly 200 000 dead. It is perfect occasion to witness amazing country in transition. 

This workshop is about YOU,YOUR photography and now about us and long self celebrating talks and presentation. We will dedicate one on one sessions with each of you and try to help you find you inner voice and story only you can tell. We will work with you on short assignments which will help us understand you and which will allow us instant feedback. During our workshop we will attend 20th anniversary of genocide in Srebrenica and mass funeral of victims identified in the past year. This will be real life experience of a emotional and dramatic event. The aim is to put you in highly energized situation and to learn how to observe and interact rather then being a mere witness.

Included in the workshop CANSON INFINITY will provide  each participant with its top-quality paper for a 12 image portfolio printing session together with LINKE. professional master printer. FUJIFILM X Series cameras and lenses will be available to participants for testing.
