Event Description

The workshop will be led by Karl Grupe of the Mango Lab: (http://www.themangolab.co.uk)   The workshop will explore the method of communicating through the use of typology (the study of types, and a photographic typology is a suite of images or related forms, shot in a consistent, repetitive manner; to be fully understood, the images must be viewed as a complete serie).  Participants will be introduced to the abstract of typology, from its origins to contemporary use in photography and be given examples of how it is used effectively by image makers as a visual communication device. Participants will then have the opportunity to approach the urban environment through the typological lens in a practical photographic exercise designed to shift the way photographers "see" and perform under this context. 


The Workshop will comprise an introduction to typology, a practical session out in the streets and a final session reviewing and discussing images.


Mo Connelly will be present at the venue from 09.30.   Participants will be able to leave personal stuff they don’t wish to carry around during the practical exercise at the venue.
