HANGOUT with photographer, ALEC SOTH - 'PHOTOGRAPHING PLACE'

Be a part of the next GOOGLE PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE HANGOUT WITH PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERTS...with ALEC SOTH!

Wednesday, 13th June @ 5:00pm UK time

In this Google Photography Prize Hangout Masterclass with Photography Experts - led by the celebrated photographer, ALEC SOTH (http://alecsoth.com/) - we will discuss the power of photography, and in particular, how photographers examine 'Place', and use it to tell stories, examine culture and society, and express themselves.  

Soth is internationally renowned for his strikingly poignant and powerful investigations of places such as the Mississippi River ('Sleeping by the Mississippi), Niagara Falls ('Niagara'), Bogota ('Dog Days in Bogota'), Georgia ('The Most Beautiful Woman in Georgia), and most recently, Ohio (Magnum's 'Looking For America' project).

To participate in this hangout masterclass just LET US KNOW WHAT 'PHOTOGRAPHING PLACE' MEANS TO YOU, and why you'd like to be involved in the discussion, VIA COMMENTS ON THIS POST!  The most interesting comments will be selected by Alec and +Aaron Schuman, and the people who submitted them will be invited to join this Hangout Masterclass!

(To help us with these masterclasses the esteemed photographer, writer, editor and curator +Aaron Schuman is on board to oversee and co-ordinate the program. Aaron has been working hard to assemble a top team of experts from around the globe to lead the classes.)

And of course we will be posting recorded highlights online, so you can catch up with the discussion whenever you wish.

We hope to hear from you very soon - post your comments now!!!
