China through colour and photography. Workshops by Joan Villaplana in Asia

Joan Villaplana, director of the Postgraduate Course in Photography and Visual Language, travelled to the Asian country to offer several sessions of the workshop Exploring our Surroundings through Colour. Activities which emerge from IED Photography to bring together culture, innovation and training.

The young photographers explored the images created by masters of Asian photography, sharpening their understanding of the gaze via the environment, and experimenting with the creation of visual stories using carefully selected images.

The workshops took place in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Nanjing, in collaboration with the art school ArtBox Education and the cultural association A Bau A Qu.
