noor-nikon masterclass in almaty
Between March and April 2016, the NOOR-Nikon Masterclass in Documentary Photography took place in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Fourteen young and aspiring documentary photographers and photojournalists hailing from Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan came together for a week of learning and sharing with NOOR photographers Yuri Kozyrev, Bénédicte Kurzen and Sebastián Liste and NOOR’s editor & projects director Asmara Pelupessy. The masterclass was hosted by the International Centre for Journalism MediaNet.
During the five intensive days, the group reviewed and shared their portfolios and projects, listened to presentations by the photographers, held in-depth discussions on ethical, practical, and creative issues, and edited a special assignment on the theme of ‘Power’ shot by participants for this masterclass. Below you will find a showcase of the participants’ work.
