AUGUST 18-19, 2018


During this week-end retreat we will look at your existing body of work, discuss, select and tone images, bring them together in stories that you have wanted to tell. In the second part of Saturday and continuing the morning of Sunday, you will have a chance to go out and photograph in Dilijan, then bring the work back to the meeting location, where we will look through the images and again bring them together in narratives. The number of participants is limited to four.

Location: The beautiful Dili Villa is located on a hill, walking distance from the center of Dilijan, within nature and silence. Our meetings will take place in one of the common spaces in the house, http://www.booking.com/Share-tI5zdS. The prices here range from AMD 10,000 to AMD 25,000. I advice registered participants to book as soon as possible to ensure availability. It is best to book with the owners directly by phone, the contact person is Nune +37491 456164. If you are not in Armenia, we can provide support.

Here is what registered participants need to bring to the gathering: 

A wide collection of your photography, on your computer. These should be your favorite images or stories you are working on. Consider bringing in any and all photographs, images you feel work or don’t, make it wide, but not more than 100 for each story. Please have the digital files be at least 1900 pixels in size and have them on a thumb drive or external HD, sequenced in the order you prefer presenting them.

Thoughts, ideas, passions - what is most important is to bring with you all your interests and passions related to visual storytelling. We will have discussions in a group setting and in individual conversations.
