Event description
An exploration of how photography and spirituality intertwine

About this event

This workshop is being run both in the evening online, and in the daytime at the diocesan office. This is the booking page for the diocesan office daytime event.

Nearly all of us now walk around with a camera in our pockets, and it’s as normal to take photos with our phone as to make calls on it. Sometimes that will be the inevitable selfie, but on other occasions it will be because we see something beautiful, surprising, or noticeable. That’s also led to growing interest and shows like The Great British Photography Challenge with the photographer Rankin.

Some photos are indeed snapshots, but others take more work. Look at the effort famous professional photographers put into getting the lighting just right, walking around their subject to get the angle right, changing the lens for a different perspective, or putting filters on for special effects. But whether it’s a snapshot or a team effort by someone like Rankin, it’s all about how we look at the world, at other people, and at what’s around us.

This workshop will explore some of the ways in which spirituality and photography intertwine. In the first part of the workshop Doug Chaplin (Discipleship and Lay Training Officer) will introduce some ideas about the relationship between the two. In the second part of the workshop, we shall share some photos together.

Participants are encouraged to submit at least one photograph they’ve taken which really speaks to them and be prepared to say a little about it. The number of photographs we will look at will depend on the number of people in the workshop, which is why the closing date for bookings is several days beforehand. This is not a competition, and we are not judging ability, or expecting any particular degree of experience or expertise.

Doug will email those who have booked a week before the workshop with instructions of how to submit your photos, so that they can be shared with the group.
