In the Flea Market of Schisto
In the flea market of Schisto every Sunday you can sell or buy anything: rare items, clothes, tools, motorcycles and cars, even animals. Sellers, others in their posts for years, others who came to sell their belongings at low prices for a little extra income, compete for customers.
During the seminar we will briefly enter their world and will collect strong photographic moments. Participants will photograph the market’s inhabitants in their exchanges, capturing the intensity and atmosphere of the place. At the same time they will be taught by Nikos Paleologos, how to shoot under difficult light, time pressure and in a busy environment, without losing sense of their picture.
On the next day photos taken will be presented in class for analysis and critique, the aim being each student to leave the workshop with a completed set of images on a unique subject.
