ICELAND PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP:

 

FEATURING EINAR “EFFI” FALUR INGOLFSSON & RAGNAR AXELSSON

 

Iceland is a country of beauty and contrasts. Known for its dramatic landscapes and natural marvels, it has been an inspiration for artists for centuries. We have specifically chosen these 9 days for the workshop because it is a time of great activity in Iceland. There are festivals taking place the first weekend and a colorful gay parade in Reykjavik on Saturday. There are also many themes and events to be photographed in and around the capital city where the workshop takes place.

 

This is an assignment based-workshop. Each student will meet with the instructors every day for their individual edit and critique session of what they shot the day before. The rest of the day will be spent shooting. Icelanders speak English and Danish widely, so there is no need for translators.

 

Each student must bring his or her portfolio. On Monday, August 7th, there is a general critique of each student’s work. It will be held at The Ljosmyndskolinn School of Photography. Every evening, the group gathers to check in on their assignments for the next day and for a lecture with local artists and experts that will share their work.

 

On the last day of the workshop there’ll be a final group critique at The National Museum in Reykjavik. Each student will show the edited work they’ve made over the course of the class. A selection will be made of the three or four best images from each student. These images will be displayed that afternoon in the museum’s lobby. The photographs will also be compiled in a book that can be purchased after the class. This workshop will be a wonderful opportunity for everyone to become a better photographer, as well as experience Iceland a most personal way.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

 

This class is for photographers of all levels. Attendees should bring their portfolio to the class for review. Students can shoot either film or digital. Each student is responsible for bringing their own camera and equipment—including a laptop for digital shooters. Film shooters must bring their own film since film is difficult and expensive to purchase in Iceland.

RAGNAR AXELSSON

Ragnar Axelsson has dedicated his career to the subsistence hunters, fishermen and farmers of the circumpolar area that live on the fringe of the habitable world. Since the early 1980’s he has travelled to the Arctic, documenting the lives of the Inuit hunters in Northern Canada and Green-land, the farmers and fishermen in the North-Atlantic region and the indigenous people of Northern Scandinavia and Siberia. His stories have appeared in print media publications such as Time magazine, Life, Stern, GEO, Polka, Wanderlust, Geographical and Newsweek, and are the subject of his major photography books: Faces of the North (2004 – republished in an extended version in 2015), Last Days of the Arctic (2010) and Behind the Mountains (2013). Behind his oeuvre is a strong conviction that the traditional culture of the Arctic people is disappearing and will not be able to resist the disrupting effects of larger forces of economy and climate change. In 2011 a documentary on his work was released, Last Days of the Arctic¬ – Capturing the Faces of the North, produced by BBC4, NDR, ARTE and ITVS.
