This September, on the majestic south-eastern edge of Europe, the workshopx editors will team-up with award winning photographer Justyna Mielnikiewicz for an intensive, in-depth documentary photography workshop.
This workshop is designed for photographers who would like to deepen their understanding of the documentary photography process. During the five-day course participants will be covering a local subject assigned by Justyna, revealing it from an insider’s perspective. We will put special attention on working with people and approaching their personal stories. But there will be much more to talk about and learn.
Justyna is a professional photographer with over 15 years of experience ranging from news photography and classic reportage, to long term, in depth personal projects, to designing and publishing own books. Being based in Tblisi, she’s devoted to reporting on the contemporary social issues in the former Soviet republics, especially Ukraine and South Caucasus. Most recently she’s started exploring women, sexuality and gender issues in the former USSR. She is the winner of the Aftermath Project Grant, Canon Female Photojournalist Prize and the Open Society Documentary Photography Grant. She’s been also awarded with prizes by World Press Photo and Photographer of the Year International. But above all, she’s one of the most passionate and experienced photographic storytellers in the region.
