« 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.
