Rwanda Genocide, Apr/May 1994

Jan Grarup’s workshop

From October 18 to October 22, 2014

Photojournalism is not about the amount of cameras you carry, neither is it about appearance – Photojournalism is about Empathy and have something on your mind which has to be told.


Michael Ackerman’s workshop

From October 21 to October 26, 2014

The purpose of this training experience is to fully explore a subject matter that truly touches the individual participant, and to investigate it thoroughly.

LuganoPhotoDays, the Fondazione Vicari and the Jury also appreciated -in addition to the high quality of the series- the diversity of the participants: nationalities and ages.
