Identity Through Photography
Be inspired by 2021’s John Moores Painting Prize exhibition and Xaviera Simmons’ Liverpool Biennial exhibition and learn new photography skills with Photoworks. Award winning photographer Alejandra Carles-Tolra will work with participants to explore how portraiture, language and landscape construct identity, as well as the relationship between painting and photography. This series of 3 workshops specifically for 16 & 17 year olds will explore themes of representation and identity, giving an introduction to visual literacy and playful methods of exploring photography.
All you will need is a camera or phone to take photos with and a laptop and internet to join the live workshops.
Consent from a parent or guardian is required to attend this workshop. A consent form will be sent to the booking email address ahead of the workshop.
