For the first time in the UAE, New York-based photographer Helga Traxler shows how to communicate through your camera and create an image without perfect studio lighting. Using the gallery, participants will connect and collaborate through the process of image taking, interacting with artworks in Tashkeel’s latest exhibition ’10 Years Later’ . Go behind-the-scenes and discover new ways and angles of looking at our environment and understand how to maximize situations in order to create colourful images that stand out.

The second part of the workshop looks at editing. Results will be discussed by the group and a 'best-of’ selection chosen for a mini pop-up-exhibition at the end of the day.

Helga Traxler specialises in portrait photography and fashion reportage. Her images have appeared in The New York Times, Die Zeit, The Cut among others and she has shot for Rauschenberg Foundation, Mac Cosmetics, Bloom Press (Art Basel Hong Kong) and events such as New York Fashion Week, New Whitney Museum’s opening party, Art Basel Hong Kong and Art Basel.
