August 4 - August 16, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Iceland is a country of beauty and contrasts. Known for its dramatic landscapes and natural marvels, it has been an inspiration for artists for centuries. The 13 days for the workshop have been chosen specifically because they are a time of great activity in Iceland. There are many strong visual themes and events to be photographed in and around Reykjavik.

Mary Ellen Mark conducts the workshop with Icelandic artist Einar “Effi” Falur Ingolfsson. Prior to the workshop, students receive a long list of possible story ideas for consideration. Examples of themes to explore are music festivals, fisherman on a ocean going boat, a summer camp for disabled children, a gay parade, swimming pools in Reykjavik, workers in a geothermal plant, a fish factory and a magnesium factory, Blue Lagoon volcanic spa, Icelandic horses, and spectacular landscape locations that are among the most beautiful in the world. Some of the music events require travel for a few days, so students who choose those themes will have to inform the workshop team in advance so all necessary arrangements can be made. Icelanders speak English and Danish widely, so there is no need for translators.

Each evening, students come together as a group for discussions. Other Icelandic photographers and filmmakers will come as guest speakers to show their work also. On the last day of the workshop there is a final group critique and each student shows the work they’ve made over the course of the class. The photographs will also be compiled in a book that can be purchased after the class.
