We love to go to the mountains, whether for sport, hiking or for the retreat of the environment. Based on photos we take during the workshop, we explore our own personal relationship with the mountains. Our footage tells us much more than visible at first sight.

Activities: Hiking, photography, introduction in picture-language, image analysis, artistic design, discussions and talks
Material: Camera (possible as well with smartphones), USB-Stick, Notebook or diary, witing things
