Photographers arrive in Liptovský Mikuláš

THE HOUSE of Photography in Liptovský Mikuláš organises its 11th Summer Photo-school between July 8 and 16 in its new premises, the MP Bazovský Gallery.

The workshop will offer 13 intensive photography courses covering various topics and genres under the supervision of renowned photographers from nine countries.

German photographer Wolfgang Zurborn will lead the experimental documentary class Ordering and Chaos, which will elaborate on using visual experiments to discover personal aspects of our everyday life. Czech artist Jaroslav Bárta aims to depict changes that civilisation is bringing to urban environments.

American Ernestine Ruben will lecture at the school for the fifth time. Her In Human Touch class will teach students to focus their imagination on a body situated in landscape. Ruben will also display her works under the same title in the House of Photography gallery.

British photographer Ian Wiblin, who has also participated in the workshop earlier, will hold his Magic Landscape class search for secrets, symbols and dreams in landscape photography. Hungarian artist Illés Barna will use his Peripheries class to reflect on changes of scenery. Georgi Maiofis from Russia will teach A World of Fantasy, a workshop that will create new worlds through staged still lives.

Finnish artist Kari Holopainen will teach students old photographic techniques, Austrian photographer Fiona Rukschcio will help them with collages, montages and new media techniques. Russian artist Alexey Goga will focus on experiments by specially constructed handmade cameras and mid format.

The Czech photographer Viťa Krejčí returns with his Illusions class and Jirka Petera will help students with black and whites. Slovaks Martin Črep and Jozef Česla will give advice on creating advertising images and Tomáš Agat Blonski on digital photography.

At the end, the workshop's results will be exhibited at the PM Bohúň Gallery. For more information, go to www.domfoto.sk.
