The exhibition Mirroring Life highlights the exceptional creative acuity of Kertész to reconfigure reality through unusual compositions. Kertész also actually used mirrors in order to shoot some of his most unusual work.
Drawing inspiration from the work of André Kertész with, you will photograph a still life or a portrait through a curved mirror. What exactly happens to your reflection when you use a curved mirror? How can you shape your reality and frame it in order to end up with an image that really differs from your own perspective?
The walk-in workshops at Foam Studios are appropriate for all ages and are made possible by corporate partner Olympus. Foam provides Olympus-OMD cameras for this workshop.
