TALK WITH ARTHUR HERRMAN
Friday, January 30th at 7pm
Many photographers are conservative when it comes to present their projects, not realizing that their work isn’t their actual work until it is presented. On the other hand, many designers have difficulties in determining their role, and deciding when they need to get out of the way or when they should just stand in the way.
Arthur Herrman will show some projects realized by his studio, addressing the different possibilities of presenting your work today: book, exhibition, web documentary and even transmedia.
A very special evening that will introduce some of the contents of the 2-day workshop open to photographers and designers who wish to explore the possibilities in conceptualizing, presenting and disseminating their visual stories. Places still available, read more here (remember we can help finding a cheap accommodation in Milan)
Arthur Herrman (born 1969) is running Dutch design office Kummer & Herrman with creative partner Jeroen Kummer since 1998. More than an office for design or communication they are thinkers and creators with a strong editorial involvement.
Most importantly it should enhance the stories which need to be told, fueling them with the right energy to move, surprise or inform. Originating from a background in print, Kummer & Herrman developed into a multi-disciplinary office with expertise in print, spatial as well as interactive design. Over the years they gathered a lot of international acclaim for their work, quite often in the field of (documentary) photography. Recently, they we’re shortlisted for the Prix Italia Web Competition in the category Best Digital Storytelling with their transmedia documentary Love Radio, and they won the Dutch Design Awards 2014 with all projects they’ve realized for The Sochi Project. Arthur is lecturing at HKU Media, University of the Arts Utrecht.
