Photo by Keystone

Keystone-SDA, NOOR Foundation and Nikon Europe invite to join for an evening with NOOR’s award-winning photographers Tanya Habjouqa (JO/US), Jon Lowenstein (US), Léonard Pongo (BE).

« Intimacy of place and the tools of telling »

NOOR photographers will share key insights used to develop personal projects and their unique paths through photography. They will share previously unseen work and explore how to move beyond a linear narrative. Join us for an evening conversation to transcend what has been strictly documentary into a new terrain of documentary photography by incorporating the humane, personal, and collaborative into the unexpected.

The conversation will be hosted in English by Agata Bar, Editorial Director at NOOR Images. Afterwards there will be the opportunity for personal conversations at the Daizy Bar.

Public event – Please register your participation by email marketing@keystone-sda.ch.

The three NOOR photographers will be in Zurich from 3 to 6 December, 2018 on occasion of an international Masterclass program, run by Keystone-SDA’s partner agency NOOR and graciously supported by Nikon Europe. Read more about the 2018 Nikon-NOOR Academy.

Reactions from previous NOOR-Nikon educational programs:

“Photography is part education and part evolution of one’s talent. This was my first workshop and it was an enriching experience. I learned more in these days than probably I could have learned in a year working in the field.”   – Bogdan Chesaru, Romania (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Bucharest, Romania)

“The workshop was fantastic! Meeting with NOOR photographers and very talented people from our region is a great opportunity. You should continue organizing programs for regional cooperation among young photographers. I got great tips about storytelling, editing, grants and bookmaking!”  – Ozge Sebzeci, Turkey (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Istanbul, Turkey)

 “The masterclass helped to draw an overall picture of my career. The experiences shared by NOOR helps to make a long-term plan.”  – Elyor Nematov, Kyrgyzstan (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Almaty, Kazakhstan)
