Photography Workshop

in collaboration with Orangi Pilot Project

February 25, 2017

conducted by Wei Leng Tay

By encouraging our international resident artists to share their field of expertise with students from underprivileged backgrounds, Vasl continues to create links with regional communities through contemporary art. As a photographer with journalistic experience as well as having an individual artistic practice, Wei Leng proposed a one day photography workshop with students from Matchless Public School and Superior Secondary, Orangi Town in which they learnt the basic functioning of a digital camera. They were guided on how to use light and create interesting compositions using the OPP Centre as their location. The students were split into groups of 5 and asked to capture objects, colours and compositions which represented ‘happiness’ to them.
