Building your Portfolio

Workshop with Alixandra Fazzina

15-16 July 2017



How to build successful & compelling portfolio? How it should look like and what options do exist? During this weekend workshop with Alixandra Fazzina participants will learn how to edit themed portfolios, make portfolios for project proposals and write accompanying texts.

In 2010 Alixandra was recognized as the winner of the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award for her fearless and tireless dedication to humanitarian photography throughout her career. Alixandra is the author of “A Million Shillings – Escape From Somalia” (Trolley) which follows the often deadly journey on people smuggling routes from the Horn of Africa. Her long-term project The Flowers of Afghanistan, documents the journeys of Afghan children seeking refuge in Europe.
