Our partner, the VII Academy, is pleased to announce the first class of the Sarajevo seminar for Narrative and Documentary Practice 2019 / 2020 dedicated to young professional photographers from the wider Balkan region. Over a period of nine months, this interdisciplinary seminar will be led by instructors and VII Photo Agency members Dr. Paul Lowe and Ziyah Gafic and will be complemented with a series of sessions by leading journalists, designers, writers, editors, and photographers.
The open call for the seminar starts on July 15, 2019, with a deadline of August 17, 2019. Selected participants will be notified by August 24, 2019. Free to scholarship recipients.
This week’s newsletter features an exhibition with VII Mentor Program photographer Sharon Castellanos, a behind-the-scenes look at Ziyah Gafic and Paul Lowe’s recent workshop in Bosnia, and a podcast with Ed Kashi.
