Event description

Description

Slow down and take a fresh look at the world around you.

Under the guidance of Ruth Davey, Founder and Director of Look Again, you will learn to take notice in the present moment and see the extraordinary in the ordinary using photography, mindfulness and walking to look again at your surroundings.

West Norwood Cemetery provides a calm and tranquil setting to explore themes such as colour, texture, light, reflection, growth, change and transition whilst creating photos. You will think about your relationship with the natural and built environment, rediscover your creativity and learn to see the world differently.

No previous experience of photography or mindfulness is required. The workshop is designed to be simple, low-tech and fun. Suitable for all ages and abilities, you don’t need a fancy camera or expensive equipment – any mobile phone, tablet or digital camera is fine.
