International Photography Programme 2019

INT (1)

International Photography Programme, Nepal 2019

Submission Deadline: 20 August 2019

Class Begins: 16 October 2019

Marking a step in contemporary photographic practice, Pathshala is going to start the 6th Batch International Photography Programme in Kathmandu, Nepal. This programme will allow the students to experiment with different visual styles, formats, transforming techniques into aesthetics and most importantly, developing a personal language through an intimate and informal learning method.

The six months International Photography Programme in Nepal offers possibilities to fully submerge in photography for the participants of different backgrounds, cultures, and ages. It is an intense period during which the student will have the opportunity to examine and experiment her/his views and understanding of the medium, stepping out from traditional photography practice to develop fresh visual languages. The programme is mentored by industry professionals, who will convey their knowledge and professional expertise with passion.


The works will be reviewed to push the clichés on photographing social issues, personal stories and fictions. The participants will aim to gain a certain level of sensibility in photographic practice, which may organically grow as an emotive response, instinctive expression or conscious and intellectual acts of art.

The accommodation facility will be provided by Pathshala. The participants will live in a shared residence [two people in one room] which is comfortable, intimate and fully-furnished. It takes 15 to 20 minutes from the school, the residence not only facilitates security but also them allows the students to stay together to maximize the exchange of ideas and thoughts.
