THE PHOTOGRAPHY MASTER RETREAT is designed for professional or aspiring professional photographers – fine art, conceptual, or documentary – who are passionate about their work and want to take it to the next level. It takes place in the tiny village of Esparon the week after Les Rencontres d’Arles in the south of France.
This year THE PHOTOGRAPHY MASTER RETREAT, third edition, will take place July 8-15, 2017.
Four internationally acclaimed mentors, Elisabeth Biondi, former New Yorker visuals editor and curator; Lyle Rexer, critic, curator and educator; and artist-educators Martine Fougeron and Katharina Bosse will guide, advise and inspire fourteen participants.
Not a shooting trip but a rare chance to pause and reflect, the master retreat is a career-enhancing opportunity for professional critique, artistic introspection and for bonding with peers passionate about photography. This memorable one-week immersive experience, set in a beautiful, remote hamlet in the south of France, is conducive to quiet contemplation and inspiration. There will be conversation, delicious communal meals, one-on-one meetings and group discussions – and precious time and opportunity to reflect, rethink and refocus the trajectory of your work.
The fourteen participants will be chosen by the mentors from submitted applications. All applications for THE PHOTOGRAPHY MASTER RETREAT, third edition, July 8-15, 2017 are due latest by January 10, 2017.
