Join Jason Fulford in this 3-day workshop, to help him make sense of 2500 submissions to the PHmuseum 2021 Mobile Photo Prize. A selection of the photographs will end up in book form as a collaborative work, designed by Fulford and published by PHmuseum.

In this rigorous and fun workshop, participants will play games and exercises, using the 2500 photographs as content. Exercises will open up the meanings of the pictures and play off of each other to create new meanings. The results will influence the final concept, edit and design of the book, and participants will be credited in print.

In three 5-hour sessions, Fulford will guide participants through various ways of looking and thinking about images. He will start with the premise that every photograph is ambiguous—that the meaning of a picture is determined by the circumstances of its reception. Once you are on board with this basic fact, the possibilities of storytelling open up. Then you can play with the photograph's inherent open-endedness, to either heighten the mystery, or clarify a point of view.

Participants should come with an open mind, a sense of humor and a strong work ethic. Aside from the book project, one desired outcome is a way of thinking and living that generates meaningful and mysterious work.
