The fourth and last workshop with Gitte Luk and Søren Pagter was held online and focussed on editing the participants’ final stories, which they had worked on during the autumn 2020. It’s these stories that will be exhibited at Cairo Photo Week.

The exhibition is curated by Photopia teacher and DMJX graduate Sabry Khaled and Søren Pagter in co-operation with the individual photographers. The exhibition texts are revised by Gitte Luk.

Cairo Photo Week offers a variety of exhibitions, talks, port folio review and educational experiences.
