I adore the country where I’ve been living for the last seven years and I feel the need to continue discovering and photographing some of its most interesting parts.
This first workshop in Mexico City during the celebrations honoring the country’s patron the Virgin of Guadalupe is just a pretext to explore this huge and mysterious city. We will visit the great basilica where hundred of thousands of pilgrims arrive daily from all over Mexico to pay tribute to her. We will be photographing inside and outside the cathedral built with love and passion by Mexicans.
We will continue our photographic search in the many neighborhoods in the historic center, the parks, the subway, the museums. The whole city will be our subject from the details of a still life to the portraits of the worshipers, from street scenes to the urban landscapes that will give us a sense of the many facets of this infinite city.
We will also have the opportunity to meet some of the best Mexican photographers living there by having some presentations of their work in which you will listen to their stories through their images.
As always, it will be a workshop that will go well beyond photography: it will be an unforgettable human experience, a life’s experience. EB
I rely on your attendance to organize many of the workshops’ logistics, so if for any reason you decide to no longer attend the workshop, please notify me at least 60 days before the start of the workshop. At that time I will refund your fee minus $200 cancelation fee. If you cancel between 30 and 60 days before the start of the workshop I will retain $250 as a cancellation fee. If notification is made less than 30 days before the start of the workshop no monies will be refunded to you.
Please note that in case of exceptional and unforeseeable circumstances such as hurricanes, earthquakes, major floods, tsunami, a war or governments’ change of policies in the countries I teach courses, BazanPhotos will only offer as a refund a new workshop in any of the other venues during that same calendar year. No other forms of refunds will be available.
