Seville's Streets, Easter Procession, and Flamenco Workshop takes students into the heart and soul of Seville, Spain, a city full of winding medieval lanes, secluded stone plazas and a fascinating blend of Islamic, Roman, and Renaissance architecture.
This workshop will focus on Seville at Easter during its week of religious processions known as the Semana Santa, a centuries old religious event where tens of thousands of religious Spaniards clad in traditional costumes march through the streets of Seville.
Peter Turnley, one of the pre-imminent visual communicators and world-traveling photographers of our time, is a tremendous teacher who has vast experience teaching overseas workshops. He is a disciple of Henri-Cartier-Bresson and passionately encourages his students to hone their attention to the “decisive moments” of everyday life. Most importantly, he will help each student revel in the joy and wonderment of observation and seeing.
Students will spend approx. 3-4 hours each day in class with lectures, presentations, photo critiques of daily work, and in discussions with Peter and other members of Spain’s photographic community. At least half of each day students walk the streets of Seville with the aim of creating a photo essay based around a self-chosen visual theme.
The Semana Santa is an emotional and a vivid visual experience that captivates and inspires a photographer's heart and eye. It is also an ideal workshop to bring along a spouse, son or daughter or partner. Companion supplement is $150.
