Hijacking the Night with Boris Eldagsen
Professional Workshop


In a stroll through the night Boris will take the participants on a tour through Singapore. He will share his working process and tricks and give insights on how to create incredible effects with little equipment and everyday materials. Boris will follow the available light like a moth and show how it can be used for staged photography. The participants will learn how to develop ideas from mapping their unconscious. During the walk they will switch roles of photographer / model / light assistant. On the following day, Boris will evaluate the results of the previous night’s work with the participants.

This is a creativity workshop. It can be taken as an extension of the ‘Highjacking Reality’ workshop or on its own.

Limited to 12 participants
