Conceived as a research and experimentation laboratory, Dinamo gives its participants the opportunity to address the creative and professional challenges that derive from their photographic projects. As part of the program, they will materialize their work into a photobook dummy, they will design their websites, an exhibition, and learn how to best communicate what they do.
The work sessions will take place every two months (7 to 10 days each) so photographers will be able to develop their projects anywhere they need to. The group lessons will be complemented by individual tutorship. Our last encounter will take place at Unseen Amsterdam, where the work of the students will be showcased in a stand at the Book Market, and they will have the opportunity to meet relevant figures from the field.
Dinamo is targeted at authors with experience in the production of photographic projects, people with a critical mind and the will to innovate photography. Each aspiring participant must submit one fully completed project and another one that will be developed during the Master Course.
