A photograph is not a mere release of the shutter but a reflection on the role of human anatomy, the subconscious, the mind and emotions in the process of viewing and seeing. It is a form of communication, which gains its power and sometimes transcends the borders of manipulation through narrative, abstraction, contextualisation and other parts and relations within the scope of the photographic medium. Crucial to that is the relationship and the proportion of power between the subject, the photographer and the viewer. 

In the knowledge that photography is a way of seeing the world, we have developed a year-round informal education programme that, lead by a competent expert team. In a dynamic dialogue between theory and practice, they explore interesting topics, guiding the participants to use their individual original expressions, and encouraging them to think critically about diverse genres in narrative photography and art, and about presenting their photographic work.
