Workshop 1: Hamburg

1-2 April 2015

After reviewing hundreds of candidates and concluding the selection process, the four curators met with the 12 chosen photographers in Hamburg for the first epea 03 workshop.

The gathering coincided with opening of the epea 02 final exhibition at the Haus der Photographie der Deichtorhallen, where nearly all epea 02 participants were present. The veterans provided inspiration and encouragement for the newcomers who were embarking on their own works that were to be shown at the epea 03 exhibition in the very same venue a year later.

Each photographer presented a series of photographs to the others and to the curators, also providing insight into their photographic expression. Some had already started on their projects, concentrating on the theme “Shifting Boundaries” while others showed earlier work they had done.

The photographers selected for epea 03 were shown to be artists with the ability to express themselves, both verbally and artistically.
