Photo Editing Workshops in KL, Bangkok and Chiang Mai (2015)

To begin with, I will like to thank Eiffel Chong (Malaysia), Sandy Pirouzi (Bandung) and Asrul Dwi (Jakarta) for contributing images from their ongoing work for the workshop participants to edit.

The workshop in Kuala Lumpur (22 to 23 August 2015) is hosted by Lostgens’ Contemporary Art Space and FINDARS. Artist Minstrel Kuik is the special guest of the KL edition.

The workshop begins with an introduction to the different approaches of editing a body of work. The methodology is framed by the kind of work, the intended artist statement and the mode of communication/delivery (editorial spread, exhibition, book, blog etc).

Following the intro, participants try their hands on editing other participants’ work. Through the process, we also explore potential trajectories to further develop the individual projects.
