Photographic Portraits – Far from Selfies
Workshop for 7th – 10th grades, vocational schools and secondary schools (in German)

On his travels the photographer Steve McCurry regularly meets people whose faces seem to reflect an entire life. But it is not the encounter with special people alone that makes this impression; technical means are also used to help these images captivate us. In the school workshop on the exhibition we look at the question of the portrait – far removed from selfies or spontaneous snapshots. What does a portrait say about the person depicted? And what does it tell us about the view and the approach of the photographer? We ourselves focus the camera on faces, which hopefully will remain in our consciousness for longer than just a moment.

With Franziska Hess, Cultural Mediator
