part of the study on social documentary photography ‘the aesthetics of ethics’
The workshop Cut&Paste Storytelling was held at V2 on the 20th of June 2015 with a group of 8 participants. Everyone was given the same article (“Rotterdam wordt Strenger Voor Minima”, social policies, AD, 2 April 2015) and invited to make an illustration about it combining hand drawing, collage and text. The illustration should be a plan for a potential photograph, considering a realistic setting and some sense of casualty. Participants were asked to leave out iconic forms of illustration and to play with the subtlety of photojournalism. In the end of the session all the illustrations were hanged on a wall and a group discussion took place.
