At the start of September, seven alumni of different academies throughout Europe came together for the BredaPhoto Masterclass. For seven weeks they will live in The Monastery in Breda and work based in Witte Rook.
Soon after they arrive you can already see the group has a good vibe. Shared home cooked meals, and also immediately an exchange of ideas. In these seven weeks Alix, Eva, Iryna, Marc, Miguel Nora en Vedad will be inspired through Artist Dinners, Masterclasses en visiters of BredaPhoto.
Sessions with masters
The Masterclasses are carefully constructed to support the process of the residents. It started with a Masterclass about brainstorm by Thijs Groot Wassink. With playful exercises he shows the residents ways of starting a new project. He gives them some tools to shake up your thought process. The second Masterclass is about Sponsoring and funding a project by Marjorie van Geenhuizen, Daniela Apice came by for some one-on-one time with the residents to talk about their process and concepts. In the weeks to come the residents will visit de Correspondent in Amsterdam for talks about editing images and Jaya Pelupessy will come by to talk to them about presenting your work, focussed especially on their end presentation. This will open on the 19th of October in Witte Rook.
Next to the Masterclasses a photographer, curator or artist will visit every Tuesday to have dinner with the residents. During this home cooked meal residents have the change to discuss their process and progress with their guests in an informal way. Up until now Geert van Eyk, Wiesje Peels and Robert Pufleb have been their guests.
