Lighthouse Calcutta - Special K - a long term mentorship program


  • Lighthous Calcutta 164/9/1 Prince Anwar Shah Road Calcutta india (map)

....I will be teaching a long-term mentorship program at Lighthouse Calcutta along with Katrin Könning.  This is a year long workshop in which students are able to develop their own project. ..インド・カルカッタに新しくできた写真施設『ライトハウス』にて、写真家のキャトリン・ケニングと共に、1年間かけて写真プロジェクトを発展させることを目的としたワークショップの講師を務めることになりました。このワークショップは1年間に3回(2017年12月、2018年3月、12月)集まり、各回1週間の集中講義・実習を行います。各参加者は3回のワークショップの間に作品を撮影し、発展させていきます。最終的には各参加者の作品に応じて、本や展示など、それぞれのプロジェクトにあった形での発表形態を模索していきます。講義や実習は全て英語で行われます。ご興味のある方は、ライトハウスのウェブサイトよりお申込み下さい。以下、詳細(英語)になります。....


The underlining idea of this program is to guide students along their individual path towards fulfilling their unique projects to their maximum potential. That project may be a book, an exhibition, a video, an Instagram feed or anything else imaginable.

The program consists of 3 sessions, one week each, spread across a period of 1 year from December 2017 to December 2018.

By working closely with students over a year long period, with recurring sessions and repeated feedback, Katrin and Kosuke will help projects move towards their strengths and away from their weaknesses. This program encourages students to work on long form narratives, attempting to unravel the HOW rather than the WHAT of a project. The emphasis of the program is on being able to return to your subject / idea over time, while working with renewed and enhanced methods. This will inspire a close and intimate engagement with your story.

The program will challenge you to see your work and subjects from new directions and fully commit to your story while finding new inspiration through discovery and learning about other relevant work. Towards the end of the program, you will see your work realised in a physical form.

At it’s core, this program is about being honest with oneself and with one’s work. It is about attempting to find yourself and bringing that true version of you as a human being into your work and letting it show in the strongest way.

It’s going to be lots of hard work and lots of good times. We’re going to be putting prints all over the walls and the floors, we’ll look at tons of inspiring work (not limited to photography). There are bound to be long heated discussions and arguments, sometimes we may not agree with each other, but we’ll discover new perspectives. We’ll print and we’ll draw and we’ll cut and bind and tear stuff up trying to make something beautiful. There may be some cool people dropping in from time to time for special sessions. Finally we will produce something tangible to put out in the world from all the work that everybody creates during this time.
