Greg Miller’s series “County Fair” contains some really strange and striking images. Greg Miller, born 1967, received a BFA in photography from the SVA in New York. He lives currently in Brooklyn.

BerlinPhotoWorkshops @ Rhein/Ruhr

Posted by (PF) at 7:10 ...

Fotoworkshop Duesseldorf - BerlinPhotoworkshops Rhein/Ruhr

Although there are some respectable state-run schools for photography in the Rhine Ruhr area, there are quite few high-quality offers of free schools. Based on this I suggested BerlinPhotoWorkshops to offer workshops in the Rhine Ruhr area, hosted in cooperation with The Sonic Blog.

Kai-Olaf Hesse breaks the ground with his seminar “The Built Environment and Documentary Strategies”. The workshop starts in April 2009 at the studio house in Duesseldorf. The application period runs up to 31. March 2009. Further information is available on the workshop page or directly at BerlinPhotoworkshops.

Please spread the word!

Friday Quote: Simon Hoegsberg

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

“Because photography is a non-verbal language it’s easy as a photographer to let yourself be seduced into making romantic, and basically meaningless imagery. I try to avoid that happening to me.”

Simon Hoegsberg
