DEANNA & ED TEMPLETON LAST DAY OF MAGIC opening on Friday, May 26 at 7pm through June 24 workshop with Ed Templeton on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 May Most may know Deanna Templeton as the wife, muse and woman behind skater, photographer extraordinaire, Ed Templeton. Just the same, though, you could say that Ed is the man and muse behind Deanna. But the truth is that they walk hand in hand – sometimes literally – especially when they go on their daily stroll through Huntington Beach photographing the seaside community’s sun drenched denizens. Indeed, Deanna and Ed are truly one of the greatest artistic duos in recent memory. While their work isn’t purely collaborative, both of their identities as artists and photographers are wholly unique, dynamic and alive with a searing, youthful vibrancy. Read full interview here Ed and Deanna Templeton have been married for almost 25 years. In Milan they will set up a small common exhibition, showing the common threads running through both of their works. opening on Friday, May 26 at 7pm – through June 24 workshop on Satuday 27 and Sunday 28 May Read an interview to Deanna and Ed Templeton by Freunde von Freunden Deanna Templeton (1969) From Huntington Beach, California.

Micamera Photography Masterclass
Micamera Photography Masterclass Seeing is Believing with Joakim Eskildsen, Hannes Wanderer, Giulia Zorzi Micamera organizes a long term photo learning class for a limited number of students. We have been organizing and hosting workshops for many years now. They have been the starting point for a number of works we have then seen published and exhibited, and for many collaborations. We always intended Micamera as a breeding ground for visual culture, a place where you can find books for your inspiration, meet other authors and people who share your interest in photography and art. Now, while keping the ‘classic’ workshop structure, we felt the need to organize a long-term class, that would meet on a regular basis, allowing the students to work on their projects in between. It will consist of 5 weekends over a period of 8 months + 5 individual, dedicated meetings, to be organized according to the students’ needs (in Milan or via Skype). From the definition of each participant’s visual language and photographic approach, to the realization and editing of the work, from postproduction to sequencing in the book, from making the book dummy to the possibility of transforming it into a published and distributed book, the workshop at Micamera will cover all the different aspects involved in the making of a personal project. The workshop will be led by a photographer: Joakim Eskildsen – a publisher: Hannes Wanderer (Peperoni Books) and a tutor: Giulia Zorzi (Micamera), to accompany the students all the way to the realization of a personal project. CALENDAR: 25-26 March with Joakim Eskildsen 29-30 April with Joakim Eskildsen 3-4 June with Joakim Eskildsen 23-24 September with Joakim Eskildsen 28-29 October with Hannes Wanderer (Peperoni Books) + 5 individual meetings with Giulia Zorzi, to set according to your needs where: Milano, Micamera / via Medardo Rosso, 19 language: English how many students: maximum 13 tuition: 2000€ info: [email protected] or [email protected] Giulia Zorzi: +39 02 4548 1569 (Micamera) or +39 335 6817 917 (mobile) TEACHERS JOAKIM ESKILDSEN – PHOTOGRAPHER ——–Joakim Eskildsen (portrait) and an image taken in Val Trebbia in 2012   Joakim Eskildsen will teach the first 4 weekends. Eskildsen has already taught at Micamera: in 2012 he led the first edition of our summer camps along the river Trebbia. It requires discipline to stay optimistic. I try to collect photographs of a world that I can believe in, that gives me hope and moments of magic. – Joakim Eskildsen ——–Joakim Eskildsen, two images from American Realities I shoot very few images – surely much less than any person around –  though I am constantly interested in the possibilities. Slow is good for me. When I will be gone, I wish I could have left behind something testifying all what I thought was wonderful. So I concentrate on things giving me strenght. We are here, and the world is an amazing beautiful place. If we keep looking at the wonderful things in this world maybe we will save it. Love must be romantic and passionate. Without feeling, I do not wanna live, I do not wanna look at things. (from an interview to GEO magazine) ——–Joakim Eskildsen, two images from The Roma Journeys   Joakim Eskildsen Joakim Eskildsen (born 1971 in Copenhagen) studied the art of producing photographic books with Jyrki Parantainen and Pentti Sammallahti at Helsinki’s Art and Design University and then went on to create various successful projects, achieving fame in 2007 with his book The Roma Journeys”, an account of his six-year journey inside the world and culture of the Roma people. The book is the result of an extensive project realized together with writer Cia Rinne and features an introduction by Gũnter Grass and a music CD. A photographic work evoking the tradition of great photojournalism, which stands out thanks to the strong characterization of both its aims and contents. Joakim Eskildsen has published 9 books, and 3 more are in the process: future publications: Home Works – (due in 2019) Nordic Signs –  new and revised edition of the first book, published in 1995  (due in 2018) Cuba – (due in 2017) published books: American Realities, book, texts by Natasha del Toro and Barbara Kiviat, Steidl Publishers, Göttingen 2016

His work has been widely exhibited – for his biography please visit his website. A world I can believe in is a retrospective that presented the author’s work as a process, from the contact sheets to the work copies, exhibition prints and sketch books of seven book projects – the exhibition was hosted at the National Museum pf Photography in Copenhagen, Denmark (May 2016 – January 2016), at the FO.KU.S-Foto Kunst Stadtforum in Innsbruck, Austria (March-May 2016) and at Strandverket, Marstrand, Sweden (March-May 2016).   HANNES WANDERER – EDITORE Peperoni Books (Giulia Zorzi and Hannes Wanderer in 2015, in Milan) Hannes Wanderer is the founder and director of Peperoni Books. When the first Peperoni Book ›Time Out‹ was published in 2004, it was not clear if further books would follow. But the feedback was that good that Hannes Wanderer – electrified by his passion for photography and well-made books – could not say no, when Stefan Canham, Marei Wenzel, Iris Czak, Henrik Spohler and others presented their excellent projects.

KEN GRANT – talk and booksigning 19:00
KEN GRANT – talk and booksigning @ Micamera - lens based arts
Jun 7 @ 19:00 – 21:00
KEN GRANT - talk and booksigning @ Micamera - lens based arts | Milano | Lombardia | Italia
  Wednesday, June 7 at 7pm KEN GRANT talk and booksigning British photographer Ken Grant will be at Micamera in Milan to talk about his work – Grant, who started taking pictures very young, has been photographing the life of his hometown Liverpool for over 20 years. As his former student Colin Pantall wrote: (…) Grant absorbed these stories from the adult world and slowly they emerged in a photography that shows how people live, but also how they think and rest and breathe. It’s neither simplistic nor romantic, but is rather a holistic photography, as informed by the bleak short stories of Raymond Carver, Richard Yates and Flannery O’Connor as it is by the Scandinavian black-and-white tradition that so clearly influences it. (read the full article here) We could also mention ‘The Players’ by Mark Steinmetz and its timelessness, or a certain Martin Parr at his best… Ken Grant will be at the bookshop also to sign the copies of two not-to-be-missed books: A topical time for these times (RRB Publishing, 2016) No pain whatsoever (Journal, 2014) You can book your signed copy sending an email to [email protected] This event is also part of the Milano Photo Week program.
