Event Details

Photojournalism: "Scratching the surface - going under the skin"

Photojournalism is not about the amount of cameras you carry, neither is it about appearance – Photojournalism is about Empathy and have something on your mind which has to be told. During the workshop Jan Grarup will explain how to reduce the “noise” in your head – narrow your story down and make you ready to go out with an energy and a clear mind to cover the stories you want. How do you research your story, get in contact with the right people and get close to human beings you have never seen before. Trust is a key issue, and at the end of the day it is all related.

Jan Grarup

Jan Grarup (DK, b.1968)
Has over the course of his twentyfive-year career photographed many of recent history’s defining human rights and conflict issues. Grarup’s work reflects his belief in photojournalism’s role as an instrument of witness and memory to incite change, and the necessity of telling the stories of people who are rendered powerless to tell their own.
His images of the Rwandan and Darfur genocides provide incontrovertible evidence of unthinkable human brutality, in the hope that such events will never happen or be allowed to happen again. His work, The Boys from Ramallah and The Boys from Hebron, covers both sides of the Intifada expressed through the lives of children coming of age amidst the violence. Grarup’s work takes the viewer to the limits of human despair, dignity, suffering and hope. His images are relevant to us all, because they form a chronicle of the time in which we live, but at times do not dare to recognize.

Grarup has been honored with many of the most prestigious awards from the photography industry and human rights organizations, including:8 World Press Photo awards, UNICEF, W. Eugene Smith Foundation for Humanistic Photography, Oskar Barnack award, POYi and NPPA. In 2005 he was awarded with a Visa d’Or at the Visa Pour l’Image photo festival in France, for his coverage of Darfur’s refugee crisis.
Jan Grarup is represented by LAIF agentur in Germany, and is based in Copenhagen - Denmark.
