The Invisible Dog

New York, New York

Join Magnum photographer Antoine d’Agata in an exploration of “What it means to be here”: a unique two-day workshop in New York City, held at The Invisible Dog in the heart of Brooklyn, NY.

Through this one evening, two-day intensive and intimate event, photographers will be encouraged to explore a more psychological approach to their image making, considering: the role of photography in society, how we relate to photography as individuals, and how we are seen and how we see. Participants will be prompted to contemplate the connection of being and photography; how we can see that in ourselves in both human form, and through images.

Through this workshop, the themes and considerations, and the guidance of d’Agata, students will deeply immerse themselves in new concepts of photography while learning to edit, sequence and create unique and innovative images.

Schedule
During the first evening, d’Agata will introduce his work and personal practice, followed by a light dinner and drinks provided for students with d’Agata.

Day One:
Participants introduce their work to date, and their goals for the workshop, followed by feedback from d’Agata. d’Agata will individually give an assignment that coincides with the themes as it relates to each participant’s work. Students will work both individually, and collaboratively to achieve their assignments.

Day Two:
Participants will present their overnight assignment for review and discussion, working on a light edit and sequence to best show their vision. The rest of the day will be spent discussing as a group personal strategies for their work after the workshop.

About Antoine d’Agata:
Born in Marseille, Antoine d’Agata left France in 1983 and remained overseas for the next ten years. Finding himself in New York in 1990, he pursued an interest in photography by taking courses at the International Center of Photography, where his teachers included Larry Clark and Nan Goldin.
For his first books of photographs, De Mala Muerte and Male Noche, d’Agata travelled the world to document characters of the night’s further edges: prostitutes, addicts, war-torn communities and homeless. The books were published in 1998.

In 2001, he published Hometown and won the Niépce Prize for young photographers. Compiling intimate and provocative images, the book focused on his travels in France and personal journey.

Traveling around the world, documenting his personal experiences and encounters, d’Agata continued to publish regularly: Vortex and Insomnia appeared in 2003, accompanying his exhibition 1001 Nuits, which opened in Paris in September; Stigma was published in 2004, and Manifeste in 2005.

Since 2005 Antoine d’Agata has had no settled place of residence but has worked around the world.

The Invisible Dog
The Invisible Dog is a raw space in a vast converted factory building with the mission to create, from the ground up, a new kind of interdisciplinary arts center.
