BME will be represented in the show by its members Zisis Kardianos and Barry Talis who during the festival will conduct a 3-day Street Photography Workshop and will also participate in numerous of the festivals' other events, such as Photo Walks, Portfolio Reviews and Discussion Panels.




Two highly distinctive Burn My Eye members, Barry Talis and Zisis Kardianos are joining forces to co-lead a 3-day workshop during the next Brussels Street Photography Festival. Their aim is to produce a unique collaborative project on depicting place identity and character and to hone the skills of the participants in visual storytelling, shooting for a project and editing for a reason.
The Brussels' boroughunder their photographic scrutiny will be Molenbeek which has come to be regarded as the hotbed of Islamic extremism in Europe. It is certainly a place that poses many photographic challenges but it is not devoid of a special and colourful character.

Dates : From Wednesday, October 4, 2017 until Friday, October 6, 2017

Location : Molenbeek a neighborhood in Brussels. Specific venue will be communicated after successfully registering.
