About the workshop
This master class is quite unusual both for the participants, as well as the lead photographer, who will try a new role for himself. In this master class Sergey Maximishin will depart from the usual format of intensive course in photo-journalism, and will work with genre and travel–photography, leaving enough time for the participants to work individually and relax. However, willingly, the participants can still work of photo stories, especially since Eastern India provides enough grounds for that.
This place is enigmatic and full of life at the same time. The cradle of Buddhism, the motherland of Rabindranath Tagore and the Indian Renaissance, this land still cherishes the thousand year old heritage of the grandeur and spirituality – it was here in Eastern India, in the town of Bodh Gaya of the Bihar state, where Gautama Buddha is said to have obtained Enlightenment. We will start our journey to the enigmatic East from Kolkata, where we will meet the local Indians, and then will transfer to Puri, a tiny (by Indian standards) town on the Bay of Bengal, which is known as the center of the Hindu pilgrimage from around the world, and famous for one of the seven main Hindu sanctuary. It's main shrine, Jagannathi _ is one of the four places, which every hindu person should visit during their life.
Despite the fact that India does not have the highest standards of living, throughout the trip our group will be staying in good hotels.
Apart from Sergey Maximishin, Pavel Kosenko will also participate to the workshop, a person who knows how to create a good productive environment. Being in the role of the assistance to the leading photographer, he will also share his knowledge and skills. The group will also benefit from the participation of Greg Shanta, who lived in India for eights year, and knows it well enough.
