Photobook Dummy Workshop

This workshop has the main objective of finding an answer to a significant question: “What is your problem with life, what are your obsession(s), reverie(s)?” The answer may / should vary from person to person! What you hate / love the most, a social or a political fact that bugs you, a childhood memory, a moment you cannot forget willingly of unwillingly… This can be anything you say “worth to speak!” in life; a personal inner issue will certainly increase the factor of passion.
