WHETHER you are a budding photographer or just someone with an interest in Photography, you could WIN and EXCLUSIVE ‘money can’t buy’ prize right here on Tamworth Informed!
World-renowned photographer, Dafna Yosha opens her first solo European exhibition entitled ‘Israel Street’ at Tamworth Library from Saturday 21 until Saturday 5 May.
The exhibition promises to display the documentary photographers most personal work which is both sensitive thought-provoking.
As Tamworth has some amazing features in the Town Centre and Castle Grounds, Dafna has agreed to conduct a ‘photo walk’ with some of our readers. To keep this intimate and make it as personal as possible, this will be limited to three people.
The prize will be a photo walk on April 21 from 11am to 2pm. The winners will be able to have a really close look at how Dafna works and how she approaches a subject. Harry Aaldering, an award-winning Dutch photojournalist and Harald Hagedorn who has taught photography in Germany and Italy for 14 years and has been curating exhibitions for 5 years will tell the winners how they might adopt it for their own photography and give you some practical advice.
You will also get an invitation to the invitation-only opening of the exhibition at 6 pm.
In addition, you will have a meeting with Dafna, Harry and Harald on Sunday 22 from 12 to 2 pm where Dafna, Harry and Harald will examine the photographs you have taken on Saturday. Each photograph will be assessed and constructively criticised by them. They will not criticise in a “how we would do it” way, but take a look at the individual approach and give you some advice how you could improve in your own way of seeing. For this, you will need to bring along a USB stick with the photographs you have taken on Saturday.
The winners do not need to have a ‘proper’ camera, any Smartphone will do! The meeting point for the photo walk and the meeting on Sunday will be the Peel Hotel, Aldergate, Tamworth.
