In the group, we will bet on conscious practice – a process of constant work, analysis and improvement of results. The group will organize regular trips and creative talks where participants will have an opportunity to photograph, reflect and analyze the footage each month. Active participation and expression of opinion by all participants will be fundamental. We focus both on the group effort for organizing photos, selecting a location, organizing additional equipment, if needed, and on the development of an individual view. Within the group, each participant should supplement and rethink their portfolio and find a challenge in longer-term personal projects.
Schedule and organization
Working groups are an environment for free communication, in which the dynamics of communication, as well as their content, will be determined by the participants.
We start with the idea of a minimum of 2 meetings per month. Meetings will take place on Thursdays.
The meeting place is “Nikolay Khaitov” community center. It is located in the Iztok district next to the Billa store (the former Iztok cinema) at 7 Major Yuri Gagarin Street, Sofia.
First meeting: 12/01/2022, Thursday, 19:00
The next scheduled meeting is on January 26, and the group will make its first trip in the period January 27-29 (the trip will be planned during the first meetings).
The group will meet with this schedule in the period November 2022 – May 2023. The group exhibition is planned for autumn 2023.
