Photo Marathon in Reykjavík
Description: This is the tenth year that SEEDS organizes series of International Photo marathons! Throughout the year participants from all over the world come to Iceland for an intensive Photo marathon project. SEEDS coordinators work with the participants to develop their unique photographic voice through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style.
Type of Work: When the workshop ends, we gather as a group to select some of our best pictures from the trip and prepare those images for an informal group exhibition locally. While learning more about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by working for the City of Reykjavik. One of our objectives is to deliver messages and draw the attention to the local population through pictures and photos made during the camp.
Study Theme: Please note that this project is more of a learning/sharing camp and not a regular work camp; we may be able to organize some outdoor voluntary service but it depends on our partners and weather conditions.
Accommodation: SEEDS participants will stay in an equipped house, in a beautiful setting inside the Botanical Gardens of Reykjavík, which are located about 4 Kilometres from the centre of the city. The facilities are basic with a shower, washing machine, kitchen and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. We will sleep in shared rooms in a sleeping bag accommodation.
Language: English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed.
Requirements: Participants should arrive ready to shoot and should bring with them their own digital cameras, lenses and laptops if possible. Volunteers should be prepared for walking and visually exploring the city streets and working within a flexible time schedule. Participants will be photographing in their free time outside of workshop hours with images to be discussed at group feedback sessions.
Approximate Location: Reykjavik is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with beautiful nature, using renewable energy sources - geothermal power and glacial rivers. The world’s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and North America. Reykjavík is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides.
Notes: Excursions (Golden Circle, South Shore, Snaefellsnes or Reykjanes) can be arranged at discount fares for SEEDS participants. Weather in Iceland is unpredictable and it can be cold or rainy. Please bring warm clothes, overcoats, scarves, gloves and hats as part of the project takes place outside. We will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening.
