'Conversations on Photography' is launched!
Willem Popelier, Karin Krijgsman, Karin Bareman, Suzan Geldhoff, Zhenia Sveshinsky, Raymond Frenken and me start with a conversation on selfies. Part of our dialogue is published in Extra 19 (FOMU foto museum's magazine), and other threads of the conversation can be found at fw: website. Colta.ru invited six curators to prepare a selection of emerging Russian photographers for a special online project. In summer 2016, I will be posting about new names & projects in Russian photography. Good news! Mondriaan Fonds has supported the initiative 'Conversations on Photography' by FW: books and a team of researchers to which I am happy to belong to. We will talk about conversations soon! A new school of photography was launched in St. Petersburg - fotografika! An intensive two years study program, and I am glad to contribute with a course 'Thousand Words' that begins in spring, 2016!
