About the

This workshop will be conducted by Swedish photographer, Martin Bogren, in the vibrant city of Berlin. Participants will be encouraged to produce a fresh body of work or extend existing projects during these intense 5 days. Bogren is renowned for his beautifully intimate photographs, combining a pictorialism and realism, framed in a subjective documentary narrative. Bogren is an observer yet engages with his chosen subjects. In mentoring, Bogren will help participants to find or expand on visual techniques and strategies towards the realisation of meaningful photographic projects, imbued with a strong and sublime sensibility.

The workshop will take place in the heart of the creative district of Kreuzberg.

Bogren is a photographer based in Malmö, Sweden. Since 2008 he has been the author of critically acclaimed photobooks including Ocean, Tractor Boys, Italia and his recently published August Song. He has exhibited at numerous galleries internationally and is represented by Galerie VU in Paris.

“At every moment he finds the right distance, one which states nothing other than the subjectivity of his perspective and he succeeds in combining a documentary approach with a sensitive affirmation of his vision. One thinks, of course, of all those photographers who – from Robert Frank onwards, from Anders Petersen to Michael Ackerman – have known how to give us the gift of their way of looking, telling us that they wanted to show nothing more than what they needed to show and to say.” Christian Cajoulle
