Rob Hornstra — DIY Storytelling
Workshop | 4. – 5.9. | 10:00 | Galerija Klovićevi dvori

Join Rob Hornstra for a two-day intensive workshop in Zagreb (Croatia) for photographers, designers and storytellers who wish to learn how to construct and present long-term photography projects.

“Many ambitious photographers are conservative when it comes to presenting their projects, offering their work – often free of charge – to newspapers, magazines, or book publishers. They put their fate in the hands of others and wait,” says Hornstra. “That’s unnecessary.”

This workshop is about what we all desire as storytellers and photographers: Freedom. Freedom creates opportunity. Opportunity makes your future.

Over the course of two days, he will outline how the Internet and digital printing techniques have opened up endless possibilities for self-published work. The curriculum will also address how to attract an audience to your project, collaboration between photographers and writers, crowdfunding and the process of slow journalism. This workshop’s main objective is to help students in creating independence and become liberated photographers and publishers, ready to begin sharing their stories with the world.

Since 2009, photographer Hornstra and writer Arnold van Bruggen have collaborated on The Sochi Project, documenting the Russian city of Sochi before it enters the global spotlight as the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics. In this workshop, Hornstra will share his insight into the funding and marketing by using The Sochi Project as an example of a self-published photo project.
