This workshop is aimed at photographers who want to develop their understanding of the creation of a photographic project that is narrative based. Participants will be guided in creating a Body of Work, and will be helped to develop their concepts throughout the course. 

Sessions will be around building criticality into their photographic practice for the completion of the project. Focus will be on research and practical development, accompanied by theoretical discussions.

The course is part time, with one on one sessions. 

Course can either be done online or by attending classes. Depends on where participants are situated.

The course runs over 5 Saturday mornings, on a two weekly cycle to allow for enough time for photographing. (10 weeks)

Simphiwe Majozi

2019 Narrative Course

Majozi's images operate in this world and in the place where our ancestors are watching over us. The Isizulu tradition of Inhlambululo, deals with the passing down of inherited clothes and other belongings of the deceased to specific chosen members of the family. The passed down pot lids act as satellite dishes to get signals from both worlds. Below is a selection of the work.

Sibusiso Gcaba

2019 Narrative Course

The mentorship I received from TTL helped me take my photography to the next level in a short space of time. They pushed me to think deeper about photography and what I am trying to say with my work. I had to trust the process.It's one thing to create images, but constructing a body of work requires careful selection of images, and to photograph with intent, and the mentorship helped me with both while developing the K'se Goli La ( This is Joburg) series. Not only did I develop my artistic skill, but I also learned more about photography practice as a whole. Michelle Loukidis and Michelle Harris have assisted many celebrated photographers on the continent, and their experience shows in every critique session. What I appreciate most is that they've helped me to develop and properly present my own narrative, instead of telling me what to say about my work, and that is what I think is important for any artist...To tell their story from their own view and experience. Sibusiso's work has been included in the Latitudes Art Fair 2020.
