Fotoasia is a cultural organization that promotes exchanges between European and Asian photographers. The purpose of Fotoasia is to promote and present in Europe exhibitions of young Asian photographers – who also run photo workshops throughout South-East Asia and Cuba with the supervision of Nicolas Pascarel.
Participants in these workshops, limited to 8 people per tour, are free to choose between either black and white or color photos with digital or film camera. They spend 10 days and 10 nights, with safe accommodation facilities, in a total photo immersion in Vietnam, Cambodia and Cuba.
Nicolas Pascarel say about the spirit of the Photo Workshop in Asia: As in all the other workshops I teach, my ultimate goal is to help each participant to create an appealing body of work with personal strong individual images. Each student will be encouraged to develop his or her own photographic language and to search for the invisible thread that ties his or her images together. I’ll help you to improve your ability to see and create new photographs, to discover your hidden potential. It will definitely be a valuable educational experience where you will develop the skills to look at your own work more critically, to appreciate and discuss yours and other people’s work by learning a new visual vocabulary. Our final objective is to produce a series of revealing; lasting images that will display a sense of the place, of its people and traditions.
This workshop is a photographic adventure, but also a human experience.
