aim to hold solo exhibition
In the lecture, photography of participants are reviewed. The participants grope and experiment every possibility of photograph expression and aim to hold a solo exhibition in Place M.
I wish participants to learn a technique and an essential theme of photography, photograph expression which is experimentally, and has "Will", study a concretely method of presenting photography, then aim to hold a solo-exhibition in the purpose. and also I wish this workshop become to a space which is for exchanging or arguement and giving impulses each other for nameless young photographers.
