How should a story be structured and what process should one use when selecting and editing images? What is it that distinguishes a reporter from an author?

Stefano De Luigi will answer these questions and more during the two sessions of the VII Tutor Program at Officine Fotografiche Milano.

Through commentary on the images of the great interpreters of this field, the class will analyze how the photographer poses himself in relation to this history and the authors that have most influenced his training. During the presentation portion of the workshop, students will view projections that retrace the history of photojournalism from its origins until today. Divided into decades, the projections will focus on the work of the authors who have revolutionized the language of photojournalism.

Starting from the 1930s and concentrating on the main categories of the classics and the outsiders, De Luigi will uncover the history of reportage and clarify its most complex aspects. He will illustrate how two apparently very different approaches evolved separately, to then cross paths and come together again at the beginning of the new millennium.

The fundamental characteristics of this work will be defined including the perception of a specific project in relation to “being a photographer.”

These discussions will take place in the first session along with talks about how to angle one’s own story, edit images and build a portfolio. The second sessions will be dedicated to the editing of the students’ works, and expanding the concept of a body of work in different directions such as multimedia, books, exhibition.
