In this class feedback is provided on a specific body of work or portfolio. Max will help you to define how to best develop it further, considering your goals and aims.

This consultancy starts preferably with a review of your work and portfolio, followed by sessions on various contemporary documentary strategies and the role of aesthetics and conventions in photography. Next to a tailor-made focus on your work, Max can provide an in-depth reflection on the medium based on diverse examples of work that define the boundaries and definitions of documentary practice today. Examples include the influence of fictional aspects in documentary, the importance of sequencing and structuring, how photobooks have defined the reading of documentary work, the power structures and ethics of image production and dissemination in the global media landscape today.

During this mentorship with Max, you can perfect a body of work and its dissemination by looking into practical aspects of photobook making, such as funding strategies and sponsoring, timing of publications in relation to festivals and the cultural agenda, how to deal with awards, grants and competitions, and the importance of profiling, promotion and communication in relation to the development of a personal artistic discourse.
