Very informative and good balance between presentations from the NOOR photographers and working groups. It was also very inspiring and a privilege to work with such respected photographers.

- Bart Brouwer


Every aspect contributed in different ways to my learning progress. Working on a wide edit was very useful namely by watching how and understanding Pep Bonet ends up with a specific edit and not another. What contributes and what distracts the viewer from the core of the story? But each activity can't be seen singularly from another. The very diverse presentations of the three photographers made me gain information that all spoke to me: ethically, practically, artistically.

 - Claudia Dijkkamp Vento

The workshop has been well planned and organized, the best part is asking us what our learning goal is and from putting out all the questions provides a great deal of support.

- Jecan Chiu

This is an experience I am very grateful for and I've learned so much. It came to me at just the right time. The professionalism of the team, with the goal of making the best photographers of us, felt like a warm bath. I'm sure this is a point in my career where I'm going to change myself as a photographer.
