Noorderlicht Workshop 2009

Passing Through
A four day workshop with Stuart Franklin
in cooperation with Magnum Photos

The aim of the workshop was to document movement in the city of Groningen. Participants were asked to capture a sense of journeying and movement that echoes the city's past as a trading town and it's history as a university town and 'world cycling city'. A typical approach would be to explore the culture of cycling in the city - how people use bikes, where they go, etc. The aim is to document the city in a fresh and interesting way. The concept 'passing through' gave enough scope to explore long and short journeys and understand some of the challenges that documentary photography presents.
