Klavdij Sluban Masterclass

The Art of Seeing


Photography is the art of seeing. How to see. What to see. It’s about the surface of things and what lies beneath. How to use photography as your own language. To see it as a journey inside curiosity, fears and values. It’s a construction of one’s own deep world. Photography helps to break the surface, or reflects your own onto the surface of the world. This Masterclass will help you to see and show. To find yourself seeing.

About Masterclass


The Masterclass is based both on taking pictures but also on editing.
Every day there will be outings, sometimes in group, to be brought to a specific place and then everyone is left on their own to explore the place at their own pace.
Some other days, each participant will have to continue alone in the direction born from by the first editings.
Each participant will create a very personal series of photos according to one’s own personality and desire to focus on a specific theme after discussion and agreement on both sides with the workshop master.
Absolutely crucial: each participant must come with a portfolio of printed photos, proof photos, not too big, in order to display them on a big table and have a general survey. between 30 and 40 photos. Quality: as good as can be.
Every day there will be sessions of shooting and editing. Proof prints will be made from one day to another. Editing sessions will be done in group and also individually.
A slideshow of the series done during the workshop will be done and projected in public the last evening of the Masterclass in a central and cultural institution. Local people including photographers, artists, will be present.
A professional and friendly team and assistants will be present during all the time of the workshop to help solving technical, material and similar matters.
