Antoine d’Agata workshop in Berlin

The gritty beauty of Berlin is the workshop’s location, a city of hedonism and artistic freedom like no other city in Europe.

Submission Deadline
14 April

“Its not how a photographer looks at the world that is important. It’s their intimate relationship with it.” 
Antoine d’Agata

Antoine d’Agata’s reputation as a teacher, is an extraordinary one. Participants have been quoted as saying, ‘a workshop with D’Agata is a life changing experience.’ Such is his unique ability to guide the individual to dig deep within, both emotionally and creatively. His photography is purely subjective and echo’s the famous mantra of Robert Capa when he said ‘if your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.’ During this five day workshop you will have the opportunity to challenge yourself, confront your fears and to move out of your comfort zone. The focus is on creativity via experience.
