About the workshop
This 5-day workshop was conducted by the Swedish photographer, JH Engström, on the Greek island of Santorini, situated in the southern Aegean Sea. Participants were encouraged to produce emotive and intimate photographs, while finding appropriate techniques to visually manifest depth and meaning with their work.
About the artist
Engström has published many critically and award winning photobooks including Härbärge, Trying to Dance, Haunts, Sketch of Paris and Revoir. His approach is intuitive with a very personal reading of the world in which the autobiographical exploration is central. Engström demonstrates that all things carry vital energy within, that solitude and empathy, feelings of safety or the contrary, vulnerability, are experienced everyday. Hence, each portrait or self-portrait, still life or landscape, holds a sum of recollections and constitutes an intimate, visual and poetic journal that addresses each and every one.
During the workshop, all necessary health security measures issued at the time were taken and participants presented the virus-free certificate.
