How to create a personal style is one of the often talked about issues in contemporary photography. Hundreds of young talented photographers manage to have their work published every year, but still only a small number continue to work on a regular basis. During this week long workshop with Christopher Morris participants will attempt to define their style, discover how it comes from a very personal perception of what is in front of them, and learn how to develop it and make it their signature.
Workshop included in the program of Paris 2014 Photo Month:
Christopher Morris, based in Paris, was born in California in 1958 and began his career as a documentary conflict photographer working almost exclusively for TIME Magazine, where he has been on contract since 1990. He has been credited with redefining political coverage in America during his years working at the White House for TIME from 2000 till 2009.
Simultaneously to his career as a photojournalist, Morris has expanded his work into the fashion world. He has received various awards, including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the Olivier Rebbot Award, two Infinity Awards from the International Center of Photography, the Look Fashion Photography Award from PDN, and numerous World Press Photo awards.
