WMA is delighted to facilitate a round of online portfolio review with two international photography experts this September. These sessions will be particularly helpful for photographers looking to edit or further develop a body of work of a consistent theme.
Titled “Photo Storytelling Workshop: Photography as Dialogue”, the upcoming workshop that spans three weekends invites participants to engage in a dialogue with oneself and other participants through images from the WMA Open archive. The workshop will discuss social, cultural, political and economic issues underpinning archived images, and investigate alternative social imaginations via new associations of their selected images.

Our coming WMA Open Talk, titled ‘Family Albums: the Private Memories and Social History’ explores family albums, a kind of image archives that everybody would be familiar with. Family albums are personal memories filled with emotions. They are records of the daily lives of a family. However, they are also a reflection of a cultural identity and social history. Some may say that they are also a vehicle of the ideologies and power relations of different times.
