Trust — Distance — Intimacy


FestivalExhibitionTalk & Discussion

Students at KISD (Köln International School of Design, TH Köln) examined the concepts of 'Trust – Distance – Intimacy' on the basis of entirely personal histories in the form of diverse photo series. The analogue or digital outcomes of the intense process employ a diverse array of photographic genres, such as portrait or documentary photography. The project arose under the leadership of BA Anna Shapiro and Prof. Iris Utikal.
