The International Association of Visual Urbanists (iAVU) is pleased to present this workshop focusing on urban landscape. The workshop will take participants on a walk along part of an urban river – the Ravensbourne - and tracing it as it passes through residential and former industrial areas of Deptford in South East London – where it is known as Deptford Creek - until it enters the Thames. The walk will be at low tide, when the tidal Creek reveals treasures of all kinds.
The challenge for the photographer in this two-session workshop will be to reveal the juxtaposition of ‘urban’ and ‘nature’, to show that they co-exist and are not mutually exclusive. Participants will need to bring a camera (digital or film) on the walk. They will show and discuss each others’ work during the second session, a week later. Please Note: As well as a (fully charged) camera (and film or memory card) please be prepared for wet and/or cold weather, as we will still do the walk if it is raining. Rain provides interesting challenges, as well as multiplying visual information.
