ARCHIVE - Passport Control 1-41 - MEDIAWAVE Art Workshops :: PASSPORT CONTROL 19 - 2010 Kisharsány, Southern Hungary :: INTERNATIONAL PHOTO WORKSHOP




The summer camp of Passport Control Art Workshops moved to a new location last year, and this year it awaits those interested in photo, film and music again in Kisharsány. The village lies next to Villány, 20 km from Pécs and is renown for its winegrowing traditions. The new place has many challenges and opportunities on stock for beginners and advanced young photographers.


The village itself will provide for the spine of this year’s photography workshop, with trainers using it as a base in various ways. The leader of the workshop, Pettendi Szabó Péter will be available for the participants throughout the training, to discuss theory and practice of individual projects. Apart from that he will give a deeper insight into documentary photography through the topic of the camp "Roma is beautiful".
In the first four days, the participants will get to know archive photo methods by Imre Zalka, as well as try out some long-forgotten practices. The camp will provide for enthusiasts of digital photography too. During the four-day training of Attila Boltresz and Balázs Nagy, digital photo manipulation techniques will be presented close-up. Participants are to expect other ways of "manipulation", as Radu Igazság, a guest teacher of the camp, professor of the Bukarest University for Fine Arts and the head of its animation department will give an introduction into this genre.


Another interesting angle of this year’s camp is Portfolio Review, a two-day event hopefully able to attract professional attention also for the participants, which will provide a professional evaluation of young photographers' portfolios, between 6-7 August. On the first day, Judit M. Horváth and György Stalter will present their latest album and consult with those interested, in the afternoon Gábor Kapolka will follow with his course and consultation. Saturday will be devoted to portfolios entirely: the five members of the jury (Attila Boltresz, Judit M. Horváth, Gábor Kapolka, Péter Pettendi Szabó and György Stalter) and the audience will evaluate the applicants' portfolios and personally give an opinion on their work.
