WE ARE ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS in Krakow vol. 1
This is the beginning of a very special edition of the WE ARE ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS cycle! Three fantastic instructors: Bownik, Karolina Breguła, and Filip Ćwik, will bring the event to Krakow at the invitation of the Krakow Photomonth. It will start on 23 May 2017 in Forum Przestrzenie, a venue seated at the bank of the Vistula river.
For the first time ever, the organisers invite Krakow audiences to attend the We Are All Photographers meetings, aimed at the enthusiasts of photography! This year’s motto of the festival – LOOK – is also close to the idea of the cycle, which is an invitation to look at photography from a more careful and critical angle. Three meetings will be held as part of the Krakow Photomonth. The first one will be focused on the artistic and personal journeys that a photographer takes. During the next one we will discuss how to look at pictures attentively and read the presented content. To conclude: a problem nagging many photo lovers – when photography becomes art. Every meeting, as always, will be followed by some time for asking questions and a discussion.
As part of WE ARE ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS in Krakow vol. 1, three meetings are scheduled:

The programme provides also for a workshop meeting over a dinner titled Discussion on Photography and Other Matters, or dinner with Filip Ćwik, which will be held on 24 May in Cafe Camelot. It will be a unique opportunity to meet one of the most interesting photographers in Poland. There will be time to discuss photos taken by the participants, give valuable feedback, and take group photos. The author of the best photograph taken during the workshops will receive an additional award: Instax Mini 90!
