International Summer School of Photography (ISSP) ...

I’ve just finished with the International Summer School of Photography (ISSP) in Latvia for the final part of my year long Masterclass (along with Philip Toledano) with nine great students from Italy, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Germany, Norway and Japan. Here’s the work of Valeria Cherchi who is going to go on to great things. An interesting format: we met for 10 days a year ago, then in Sicily for three days at Easter and then finally back in Latvia for a week. Many Skype calls in between. Kidnapping in Sardinia; refugees in Estonia; Was Homer’s Odyssey set in the Baltic; Whaling in Japan were some of the subjects. The students were a joy to spend time with.
