This five-day masterclass with Max Pinckers and Mathieu Asselin focusses on developing a personal vision, critical attitude and individual approach towards the production of an artistic body of work within the context of documentary photography. Based on a series of one-on-one mentoring sessions and group discussions, participants will be encouraged to question notions of truth, authenticity, objectivity and the underlying belief systems that drive our hyper-visual culture today.
