"Unstaged Workshops" is proud to announce the 2-Day Street Photography Workshop with Arek Rataj - an award-winning photographer (Sony World Photography Awards, LensCulture Street Photography Awards).

The workshop's main objective is that the participants gain valuable knowledge about the art of unstaged photography with an emphasis on so-called “decisive moment” - a term coined by Henri Cartier-Bresson, a pioneer of street photography.

The workshop includes an introduction to street photography subgenres, classroom sessions (theory), outdoor sessions (practice), and a two-week-long mentorship program, during which the workshop attendees can strengthen their visual awareness and submit portfolios for review.

We are pleased to invite you to the next film in the Al Jazeera Documentary’ art film series being shown at the Fire Station Cinema: “School of Caricature”.

The film explores the beginnings of the Egyptian caricature and its early stages with Yaqub Sanu in the late 19th century. Then, it moves to the revolution of 1919 with the satirical magazine “al-Kashkul”, "Al Lataif Al Musawara" comic magazine and then the emergence of the Rose Al-Youssef School where most of caricature stars emerged. This is followed by “Akhbar Al Youm” (Today’s News) magazine.
The film also discusses the struggles faced by caricature art, supported by newspapers and magazines. It also sheds light on how governments were influenced by these satirical caricatures’ agendas and observations. In addition, the film explores the 1970’s which represents the golden age of caricature art.
