OPEN16 Participate: Bill Leslie - Photography and Sculpture
What happens to sculpture when it is photographed?
What will an object made to be photographed look like?
Brighton Photo Fringe launched a new opportunity for early career facilitators and educators to create a project especially for this festival’s Outdoor Hub.
Working with people of all ages, Bill Leslie’s workshops will ask questions about what happens to sculpture when it is photographed. Participants will explore the possibilities of photographing objects and making objects to be photographed. The objects and images we create together will offer answers to each question and every contribution will be equally valuable. The images created will be revealed throughout the festival at the Outdoor Hub.
If you’d like to be involved, Bill will be hosting drop-in workshops for all ages at King’s House on Sunday 2 October between 11:00–13:00 and 14:00–16:00.
If you are interested in doing more, you can sign up to a 2-hour workshop on Sunday 16 October.
Free but booking required, age 16+.
Can’t be at a workshop but want to join in? We will be posting Bill’s questions online and sharing our workshop participants’ answers on Instagram. Have your say and share yours!
