Linn Schröder
Within Linn Schröders series, every single frame forms itself in to a self contained work. She then puts them together and creates a coherent, atmospheric succession. That’s why her photography resembles poetry rather than prose. She doesn’t finish the story, but leaves an open end for the observer to resolve. Her works that often negotiate the relationship between dreams and reality are free from cliches or, for that matter, anything the observer might expect. Linn Schröder puts a lot of herself, in to her photographs and by so doing, enters a more personal sphere of of photography. When her little sister was ill, she took a portrait of her once a week for an entire year and this way documented not only the process of her extended recovery, but also the changes to their personal relationship in the meantime. The picture “Self Portrait with Twins and One Breast”, uses her own body to depict a deeply intimate story.

Seminar
During this seminar each student develops a conceptual idea and translates it into an individual visual language. This is done in a conscious confrontation with the medium of photography and through a process of intense and independent picture taking. Our own experience and ideas will be implemented through the conversation. Another focus I will highlight is the appropriate form of presentation. The aim is to publish the resulting work in an exhibition or other publication.
