With help from the A-N Travel Bursary, I traveled to Monterrey in Northern Mexico, where I co-ran a four day workshop in one of Mexico’s main Museums of Contemporary Art, MARCO, with artist Marysa Dowling http://www.marysadowling.co.uk/ The workshop was titled The Portrait As transformation. During the sessions, with photography as an underlying theme, we discussed and worked with portraiture, self portraiture, collaboration, masking, performance, costume and location.
The workshops were a great success and the participants produced many highly creative and accomplished images.
The workshops were also great in being able to discuss my project with the participants. I was able to gather more information about spaces that I was not familiar with, so again local knowledge was vital in ensuring the project’s success.
