If your purpose in interviewing goes beyond getting a quick quote, then this workshop is for you. It’s about gathering reliable answers and rich detail from human sources. This one-day workshop will help you improve your questioning and listening skills, to recognise important signals, and to save the interview when it gets difficult. In role play you are going to apply techniques that build two key assets: “the second story”, another name for buried truths; and narratives that can be used to construct powerful scenes.

This one-day workshop challenges the boundaries of the documentary tradition and questions the prevailing conventions of storytelling in photography. Subjective or conceptual documentation, diaristic interpretation and metaphorical narrative will be among the methods of visual practice that we will examine during the day. The value of content, and the need to establish a point of view will be encouraged as a mean to challenge the dominant representation, and a way to tell stories with visual narratives closer to a more personal perception of reality.
