Tom Saater

Tom Saater, recently nominated for the World Press Photo’s 2017 Joop Swart Masterclass will be our guest artist at the Critical Text Writing Workshop starting on Monday 20th March, 2017. The workshop is a 5-day program put in place to aid art photographers to write critically about their works/projects.

Saater is young photographer who is widely travelled with a rich experience in documentary photography. He was nominated in 2015 for Magnum Emergency Funds. In December 2009 he was invited by the British Council to participate in a photography project called “My Home is Here”. The project involved travelling around Nigeria to produce images of Climate Change in Nigeria and, as part of this project, he was awarded a Canon professional camera and selected to travel to Ethiopia to exhibit at the 2010 Addis Photo Festival in Ethiopia.

In 2014 he was selected for the second time to participate in the Invisible Borders Trans-Africa Road trip project, travelling from Lagos to Sarajevo, stopping in major cities creating personal documentary projects and collaborating with local artists on various projects.

In 2016 Saater travelled across West Africa with the famous Hollywood actor from Benin Republic – Djimon Hounsou (The Gladiator, L’Amistad).

He will talk about his “Beautiful Journey into Photography” on Wednesday 22nd March, 2017.

Time: 10.00am – 4.00pm

Emeka Okereke

Emeka Okereke is the Founder and Artistic Director of the renowned Invisible Borders Trans-African Project. A multiple award winner and experienced photographer. Okereke ” oscillates between diverse mediums. He employs mainly photography, time-based medium of video, poetry and performative interventions in the exploration of the central theme of ‘borders’. His works grapple with the questions of exchange and co-existence in the context of various social-cultural confluences. Another aspect of his practice lies in project organising: coordinating artistic interventions which promote exchanges cutting across indigenous and international platforms”.

“In 2003, he won the Photographer award from the AFAA “Afrique en Création” in the 5th edition of the Bamako Photo Festival of photography. He has a Bachelors/Masters degree from the National Fine Art School of Paris and has exhibited in biennales and art festivals in different cities of the world, notably Lagos, Bamako, Cape Town, London, Berlin, Bayreuth, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Brussels, Johannesburg, New York, Washington, Barcelona, Seville, Madrid, Paris, etc. His works was exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennale of Arts under the Invisible Borders space-installation: “A Trans-African Worldspace” which he also curated”.

Okereke will engage the participants on the 20th – 21st March, 2017 in an intensive and analytical class on how to develop projects and write articulate artists statements, motivation notes and project proposals that can take you into festivals, biennials, residencies etc.

He will talk about “Communicating Your Ideas and Articulating Your Thoughts into Critical Texts” on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st, March, 2017.

Time: 10.00am – 4.00pm
