Introduction

In this special workshop, Anush Babajanyan and Linda Bournane Engelberth will work with eight women photographers to elevate their work to the next level by highlighting women’s unique perspectives. Spanning three days and aimed at committed visual journalist and artists, the workshop will be entirely free to chosen participants (eligibility requirements below). The group will foster discussions on the challenges facing female photojournalists, and how to overcome them to carve out careers in this demanding industry. Linda and Anush will review each participant’s work in group critiques, giving advice about how to develop the images and stories. If the photographer has a body of work she has already started, this workshop will help the photographer develop her ideas and take her work into new directions. On the streets of Sarajevo, they’ll work with each student on technical details as well as shaping quick vignettes of the city and its inhabitants. On the final day, the group will meet to edit and discuss work shot during the workshop and put together a final screening. Along the way, Linda and Anush will advise on professional networking, editing portfolios, and finding and creating paid work.

Schedule

Day 1: 10am – 5pm

On the first day, Anush and Linda will make introductory presentations by showing their own work and examples of other female photographers working internationally in different genres of photography. Following the presentations, the students will present their photographs (10 each), while Linda and Anush edit and discuss each participant’s work, give advice and talk about how to develop the images/stories.

Day 2: 10am – 5pm

The students will be given a photography task in the morning, and will spend the rest of the day shooting. Anush and Linda will work with the women outside, switching between groups, and helping to navigate challenges. At the end of the day, the students will prepare their work for feedback the next day.

Day 3

On the final day, Linda and Anush will review the images produced during the workshop, make a short edit, and, together with the participants, prepare the work for a final screening.
