We have been talking with photographer Peter Dench about running a documentary photography workshop. The workshop will be very social, with Peter showing us how he tackles capturing the everyday. It will be aimed at all skill levels, more about taking the photo, of seeing opportunities to document people at play, at their leisure time.
The session will be to encourage people’s interest, and to add a photographic element to the archive, so participants to the workshop would have to agree for their photos to end up in our archive. We’d touch on the aspect of capturing metadata, of adding context to the photos.
Peter is just finishing a photography commission to capture the Future of Britain. He has been traversing the nation to build a comprehensive visual archive of how you live in modern Britain; where do you shop, holiday, who lives in your house, what concerns you most? futureofbritain.com/gallery
