NOOR partnered-up with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Tanzania to organise a free 2-day Photography Workshop in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from October the 24th until October the 25th.
About the Tutor
Kadir van Lohuizen (NL) has covered conflicts in Africa and elsewhere, but is probably best known for his long-term projects on the seven rivers of the world, the rising of sea levels, the diamond industry and migration in the Americas. His most recent project ‘Arctic: New Frontier’ done together with Yuri Kozyrev for the Fondation Carmignac was exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
In this workshop participants will discuss, share & learn about the development of a long-term photographic project. NOOR photographer Kadir van Lohuizen is a master of visual narrative and storytelling, allowing him to engage participants into crafting their stories. Together with the participants, he will work on the (re)conceptualizing, sequencing, and narrowing down the series and projects.
Date: Thursday & Friday 24-25 October 2019
Location: Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Application deadline: October 6, 2019, at 11:59 P.M. (EAT)
For more than a decade, NOOR Authors have documented our growing climate crisis caused by fossil fuel production and material consumption along with the political forces enabling this planetary catastrophe. Through our work we have also pointed to solutions to help ensure sustainable human presence on this planet. The need for action is urgent.
As world leaders meet in New York City next month and climate actions are planned world wide, we will dedicate the month of September to sharing stories on the environment from our archive and works in progress. Please follow these stories on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
We encourage our media partners, researchers, and our community to do the same.
Kadir van Lohuizen's long-term project on the sea level rise will be exhibited at the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Rising Sea Levels project is designed to highlight both the immense complexities associated with in-island and inter-island/country movement, as well as the specific human rights implications involved with such involuntary movements.
Date: October 4, 2019—May 10, 2020
Location: Maritime Museum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
