In conjunction with the Documentary and Visual Journalism Group, RPS London is offering a workshop led by urban photographer Ida Pap. Around the banks of the Thames, participants will learn some of Ida’s secrets for seeing things in our urban environment in a different way and have the chance to shoot some "urbanalia". After the shoot, Ida will offer critique and feedback on participants' images.
About the tutor: Ida Pap is a self-taught photographer living in East London. Growing up in central Budapest she has an odd sympathy for urban decay and loves the abandoned feeling of the city. She believes in seeing beyond the average to capture those details people are too busy to pay attention to, using often unseen treasures as main subjects. The people in her photography are secondary and mostly coincidental, thus she doesn’t concentrate on documenting people in their environments but the environment itself. Her body of urban work includes urban abstract, architectural, conceptual and street portraits. Please visit www.ideoda.com for examples of her work.
Tea, coffee, water and biscuits will be provided, but lunch is not included.
