Creative Workshop 1: “The Negotiation”

by M. Mileva

You should precipitate a live encounter with a stranger and make a series of images with that subject. During this process you should both depict the subject in the environment and  at some point venture into the subjectʼs personal space, you should do this and come away with at least one personal story from them.

For my “negotiation” I took pictures of a girl, named Yoana, who study architecture in Cov Uni. I met her at my add+vantage last October. We had like a 3 sessions there, some of nice general conversations and that was all, because I changed my module. Last week I contacted her and ask if she is up for a walk or so. Was a wonderful sunny Saturday morning in which we spent couple of hours together. During our walk I tried to know her better as well as make her feeling good with me and my black machine. And I did. She told me more about herself, some of her recent emotional private stories and in the end felt quite comfortable in front of my camera. The session end up with a nice hot tea.

In the end, I may say, I’m proud of this one:
