In this photographic course we’ll travel back in time.
You will get an introduction to analogue photography and you’ll learn how to use a a film camera. For the full GDR and Soviet experience, you’ll be provided with cameras from that era, like the famous Soviet Zenit cameras. We’ll teach you how to load the film, how to handle the camera and which settings to use. After that we will go together on a photographic and historical tour where you’ll learn how to get an idea of “slow shooting”, to choose the ideal place, to find the right moment and set a perfect composition to depict what you see and want to express with this photograph. We will discover some architectural and cultural gems of the GDR era in the district of Friedrichshain and the underestimated district of Lichtenberg and you’ll learn a bit about their history, too. By the end of the experience you’ll know how to enjoy the art of “slow photography”, have a new insight to “East-Berlin” and how to create tangible memories for a lifetime.
We will develop the films and give you the negatives as well as I will provide you with high-res scans of the photographs.
