Workshop of photographic creation

Even if it is not the device that makes someone become a photographer, we can not do without the technique and even more so when we rely on trainers like those of the artistic photography workshop that the Spanish Agency for Development Cooperation (AECID) and the Spanish Embassy have just organized. With Héctor Mediavilla and Apsathou Bagaya, even the most technical details are an excuse to have fun learning.

13 photographers from Niger participated in…

A one week workshop, locally coordinated by Apsatou Bayaga, probably the most important woman photographer of Niger.

Comparing to the Senegalese photographers, their access to photographic education or the contact with the international photography market was almost non existent. So my particular goal of this workshop was to provide local photographers with the basic technical skills to be able to develop a personal project. They were really motivated (for most, was their first chance in their life to follow a photographic training) to learn but also to develop their projects about Afrotopia. The list of photographers that completed the workshop were:

  • Boureima Abdoulaye (BERGE)

  • Abdoulaye Ali

  • Peter Aborisade Adeyemi Lawrence (REA MISE)

  • Lawali Abdou Maman (LAWALI RASTA)

  • Abdou Miko (DOULLAH)

  • Abdou Garbá Mostaphá (YAHE TCKIKO)

  • Fatima Ousmane

  • Touré Abdel Razack (ZAK)

  • Moussa Kélani Roufai

  • Hadjara Mahirou Saley

  • Ahmed Tourmane Souleymane

  • Konaté Ousmane Tidjani

  • Rakiatou Ibrahim Yayé
