We start to meet you all over Siem Reap, a good sign…Stories, stories, don’t worry too much, stay simple… some small stories can make great pictures… Do not try to engage in stories that some other people have done with years of work. Try to be realistic in your search. Enjoy the nice weather and slowly settle in the place… Tomorrow evening, look like about 6:30 ish at the FCC…  See you

Applicants research stories…

We would like to see the chosen applicants for the free workshop to start doing some research on the stories they intend to develop during the week-long engagement in Siem Reap. There will be 4 groups divided among the tutors. Keep in mind that any story related to health/development that has to go through a government agency, hospital  or an NGO need prior approval from them (you cannot just walk into an hospital ward, even in Cambodia…). There are numerous education, development and assistance projects based in Siem Reap. And you can find lots of relevant info about it on the internet. Do not worry if you cannot outline an assignment for yourself as we are assisting you.

Almost final now… We’ll have a great group of tutors for the workshop. With us : Antoine D’agata, Philip Blenkinsop, Patrick de Noirmont, Olivier Nilsson, Steve Raymer and Arantxa Cedillo… Nic Dunlop was a probability but he has to be in Phnom Penh that week for the ongoing KR tribunal. We’ll make four working groups. It will all evolve around documentary photography but with some variations, going with the work style of each tutor. As well, remember, we are all volunteers and there is hardly any photo-workshop where you get this kind of line-up… And since we are located next to John McDermot’s Photo Gallery in Siem Reap, John will spend sometimes with a number of students toward the end of the week, to talk and show what is it to print images for exhibition and running a Photo Gallery. I let go do the search yourself on the net to find out who’s who…

      Hello Roland,
      I attended the 2007 festival and was hoping to join this year again but unfortunately I read there won’t be any this year. I understand you are still running the workshops but i figured from reading this blog entries that application have been closed (?) for 2009. I would love to join the 2010 edition, if planned, and was hoping you could shed some light as to registration process (which I can’t seem to find here). I am French, based in HK and passionate about B&W analogue photography (my hobby)
      Many thanks in advance, I look forward to hearing from you

Story on TB

We will, as part of the workshop, generate a story of TB situation in Siem Reap area, as STOP TB Partnership is one of our sponsor.

Following the workshop I did (your coordinator) earlier this year (March 2009) with young Brazilian photographers in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, we’ll work with one photographer on documenting TB and MDR-TB extend and treatment for that part of Cambodia. If some already invited students express some particular interest to the story, they should send me a mail.
