Enter a photographer’s dream world where the sun never really goes down. Navigate through the blurred time & space of famous White Nights in St. Petersburg. Watch an insomniac’s dream. Look behind the scenes. Walk on the flapping wings of the opening bridges. Discover what this uncanny time of perpetual glow reveals: roofs, nooks and hidden corners. Their inhabitants descended from Dostoevsky and Gogol.
Unity of Place. Unity of Time. Unity of Action.
Every student develops his own project and all students work together on a group topic. All days share the same curriculum: afternoon: photo sessions, in group or alone. evening: photos review, discussions. night (optional): movies, wine, chess and merry-go-rounds.
Artist’s who are selected for a workshop are expected to be self motivated, self organizing and self contained and to meet all their own expenses other than accommodation and working space. English or Russian language skills are welcome!
