From Here & Away X The Forks. "Meeting Place" Photography Workshop.

The Forks and From Here & Away are partnering together for a photography workshop that is FREE and open to all*. Encompassing the past and present of The Forks, together we’ll explore the theme of "Meeting Place." The two-hour photo walk will include technical instruction on how to use our cameras better (at workshops, everyone teaches everyone), as well as explore the sites history.

The workshop is free, but donations towards the FH&A Fund are accepted. No previous skill or knowledge of photography is required. Feel free to use your phone, film or digital cameras. You are encouraged to bring friends and an attitude open to learning.

Around here we like to start the year by hating our city.

I always thought it a shame, growing up, how widespread and acceptable it was to hate Winnipeg. No matter how positive your "new year new me" resolutions were you could still resent the place you lived.

This coming Saturday we are going to explore the relationship between nature and industry in this neighbourhood. The progression from historical indigenous camp sites, to early trade route settlements, to sparse industrial area, to a very wild place over the last 300 years is impressive to say the least. 

From Here & Away: a short history.

From Here & Away: a short history.

Hello! My name is Joseph Visser, I am a photographer from Winnipeg, Canada and am the founder of FH&A. I'm here to tell you a bit about how everything got started. 

Three years ago I started to work on a photobook eventually titled From Here & Away. To sum up the book in a sentence... I explored the interconnectedness between human beings, their environments, and each other. I did so across what was familiar to me (here) and places I had traveled that were new to me (away.) My goal was to show the beauty and complexity contained on our small planet.

Without skateboarding, photography wouldn’t exist for me. Since I was a young guy growing up with skateboarding in the late 90’s early 2000s I relied heavily on Magazines for my content. I didnt have the instant access that we do now. This made me really look at the content in the mags. I fell in love with the photos. There was something about the way these photographers would capture skateboarding & its lifestyle. That all just jumped off the pages for me.
