More Personality and Passion in your Project

During this workshop Kessels will be interacting with the participants on how to create the start of a photographic project from a close personal and passionate story.
In the workshop, the focus is on this personal book/exhibition project and will deal with crafts like idea, narration, edit, and how to communicate this work.
The participants will, if possible, bring some of their works that will be the start of the discussion where to go with it. 
Apart from this there will be also an inside into Kessels his personal way of working and creation. The end of the workshop could result in a pop-up exhibition where all participants show their work.

Erik Kessels
Is a Dutch artist, designer and curator with great interest in photography. Kessels is since 1996 Creative Partner of communications agency KesselsKramer in Amsterdam and London. 
As an artist and curator Kessels has published over 80 books of his ‘re-appropriated’ images and has written the international bestseller Failed It!
Over the 20 years of his career, Kessels has come to the fore as a main and unquestionable reference in the field of so-called ‘found photography’. Instead of shooting new images, for most of his projects he brings together pre-existent photographs and reuses them as tiles to form his own mosaic. He is an artist without a camera or even a lens: in his practice, photography is a ready-made element to be sampled and re-contextualised. The result is a sort of eco-system of images, through which nothing is added to the enormous quantity of imagery which now crowds out the world and grows exponentially day by day, but which on the contrary merely recoups and recycles that which is already there
Kessels made and curated exhibitions such as Loving Your Pictures, Mother Nature, 24HRS in Photos, Album Beauty, Unfinished Father and GroupShow. 
His mid-career retrospective was shown in Turin, Düsseldorf, Budapest and he exhibited recently in the SFMOMA. He was called “a visual sorcerer” by Time Magazine and a “Modern Anthropologist” by Voque (Italia).
