Poplar Union brings you a photography course by established East London photographer Pierre Bureau. The course, called Stories We Tell aims to enable local people with little or no experience of photography to develop the skills necessary to create and share reflections of their own community while having fun, all using the participants’ own cameras.
Each session will be facilitated via Zoom and start with an introduction to the topic, and a review of the previous weeks’ photos. The sessions will be designed to build skills and confidence. At the end of the 8-week online course, there will be an exhibition at Poplar Union of the work.
Pierre Bureau is a photographer and workshop facilitator living in East London. His photographs have been published in The Guardian, the BBC, Geographical, and in 2020 he has been shortlisted for The Wellcome Photography Prize. He also helps find solutions through doing photography workshops using photography to explore daily life.
This course will be taking place online via Zoom. Please book your ticket by selecting the 3 Dec and this will give you access to the whole 8 week course. You must book in advance to be sent Zoom details prior to each session.
