Mentorship “On Seeing: Producing a Photographic Series”

Instructed by photographer/cinematographer Jamie Maxtone-Graham and taking place at Matca Space for Photography over a 10-week period, this mentorship will guide participants through some relevant issues and ideas of seeing, perception, and the particular nature of the photographic image, with the eventual outcome of producing a personal, long-term photography series.

Through regular exercises, critique sessions, discussion and research, Jamie Maxtone Graham will help each photographer find their own central abilities and interests and assist them in forming a structure to their own work. This will be accomplished both in larger group meetings and in smaller group and individual mentoring sessions. This is not a technical workshop. 

This mentorship will be an intensive and challenging experience. Participants are expected to be motivated, eager to participate, and prepared to work. The final goal of the mentorship is for each participant to complete a photographic series that reflects their personal vision. 

Past participants have gone on to Angkor Photo Workshop, Nha San Collective residency, Heritage Space MAP, Objectifs Centre for Photography and Film, Erasmus Mundus, and more.
