"A picture can be an answer as well as a question but if you can't answer your question try to question your question. There are clever questions and stupid answers as well as stupid questions and clever answers. There can be questions without answers but no answers without questions. To be or not to be — that is the question. To see or not to see — that is an answer."

— Ernst Haas

OnClick NYC : "Dreaming with Open Eyes" and "To Be Is To See"



10th Anniversary of the BTK workshop from Berlin Germany 2017-2017

It all started with two friends bumping into each other in Berlin’s Nikolaiviertel in the year of 2006.But it was photography which brought us together the first time in New York more than ten yearsprevious – in 1995 Thomas was a student at Photography School in Vevey (Switzerland), doing aninternship in New York. Todd was, and still is, a NY-based photographer born in Detroit. At thattime Todd started his project about the re-emergence of Jewish life in Germany which brought himregularly to Germany.But back to Berlin and the year of 2006: Todd came up with the idea of offering a photographyworkshop to the students of the school where Thomas was teaching, Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule(BTK), now known as the University of Applied Sciences Europe. Thomas presented the ideato Matthias Leupold, who was the chairman of BTK, and who was immediately enthusiastic aboutthe project. He supported the idea and just a year later, in 2007, the first group of students left Berlinand were received by Todd in New York to attend the first BTK Street Photography Workshop. Thiswas the start of a long tradition celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.The Photography Workshops in New York City give students the chance to meet many successfulNew York-based photographers, graphic designers, and artists working in both the commercialand fine arts world. We visit museums, schools, and companies working in new media. It gives thestudents a glimpse into a realm that the university is preparing them to enter. The students also havethe possibility to work on a project of their own. We help them to develop and conceptualize theseprojects during their two-week stay.Once back in Berlin, Thomas and the students organize an exhibition of their own works. Thestudents learn all the steps needed from A–Z, starting with the selection of their photographs andthe editing process, how to get in touch with galleries, all the way to the creation of flyers, posters,and a catalogue. The results of each year’s workshop becomes something prominent every studentcan then add to his or her portfolio. The exhibition itself offers a great opportunity for the schooland students to get in the public eye and be in touch with the Berlin art and photography scene.During the workshops, Todd shares the teachings of his mentor and teacher, the Master PhotographerErnst Haas. Todd assisted in many of Ernst’s workshops from 1972 up until 1986 whenhe passed away. To “Dream with Open Eyes”, as Ernst would say, is the spirit we share with everystudent. The workshops inspire them to try to find their own personal inner voice by looking inwardat their own heart and interests. To begin with no plan per se but to start to create something theyare passionate about.Another important aspect of the workshop is the group as a whole. Nearly two hundred studentshave participated in the NY Workshops these past ten years. We feel it gives each student a chanceto bond and strengthen their friendships with fellow students outside the regular classes. Eventually,it’s these friendships that will help them to develop a professional collaboration the way that we oncecreated the Street Photography Workshops in New York.

The next NYC workshop will host the Ostkreuz School from Berlin, and will be conducted in 2014.

Essence of Street Photography at Missouri Botanical Garden the Shaw Nature Reserve St. Louis Missouri September 2013

The Berliner Technische Kunstschule and will be conducted March 2013

The idea for my workshops is the direct inspiration of the photographer Ernst Haas, who was my mentor, long-time teacher and friend. I have worked on Haas' projects and assisted him in teaching from 1973 until his death in 1986, as well as conducting my own workshops in Germany, Ireland, Italy, in New York City and throughout the USA.

Workshop overview:

Participants will spend one week in New York City visiting galleries, art schools, design studios, museums, editorial departments, artist studios and commercial photography studios.

The goal is to expose students to a wide range of creative talents working in diverse styles, thus helping them to acquire different ways of seeing. The exposure to diverse influences is one of the prerequisites in developing one's own style. The more we learn about the world we are living in, the more we can create a personal vision to empower the development of one's own body of work.

Each workshop will also include sessions where works of course participants will be reviewed, giving the individual an inspirational critique.

"Style has no formula, but it has a secret key. It is the extension of your personality."

— E.H.
