Following the success of our Visual Storytelling Workshop last November, instructor Kevin WY Lee, founder of Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) is returning to facilitate another online series this March.
The four-weekend workshop is tailored for those who use images as part of awareness raising, educational, and fundraising campaigns. The instructor will guide the participants to use the source from open archives to develop their own photo story. Robert Godden, founder of Rights Exposure will also guest speak at one session to discuss the concept of “Informed Consent”.
The upcoming exhibition at WMA, ‘Can’t touch this!’ is facilitated by visual artist Angela Su. It was conceived as an extension to ‘Faces under Masks’, a book project initiated by journalist-turned urbanist Chloe Lai. Three visual artists, Siu Wai Hang, Yim Sui Fong and Kenji Wong Wai Kin were invited to create visual responses to the exhibition.
Founder of The Salt Yard Photobook Store, Dustin Shum recommends ‘Fish Story’ by the leftist photography theorist and artist Allan Sekula. A deep dive spanning Marxism, globalisation, ecosystems, and our relationship with the ocean, it inspired Dustin to ponder on the Belt & Road initiative.
Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of America’s 9/11 terrorist attack. This year, as usual, there are memorial events at the base of the Twin Towers. But, the coronavirus pandemic has made them less visible. The younger generations are less aware of the incident. We bring you this book, War Primer 2, which revisits America’s 18-year war on terrorism, as well as the rise of the internet, and its impact on the way we understand and think about war.
