His Project: ›Patagonien‹

›Patagonien‹ as a very special workshop concept Matt Bishop had already made many trips, which he had reported about via Instagram or on his website. However, there was one trip that had made a particularly deep impression on him. In 2009 he had been with his wife at the southernmost end of South America: Patagonia. At that time, he had fully immersed himself in the landscape, the people, the attitude towards life and had experienced a deep connection with this landscape. He had hardly taken any photographs. It was clear to him that he had to come back to capture his experiences in fascinating photographs.

Many years later, a friend from Argentina, a tour guide with an own agency, contacted Matt to ask if they would like to develop a joint workshop concept based on Matt Bishop's passion for the country and for photography: On the one hand, the workshop participants should get to know the country, the culture and the people better. On the other hand, they wanted to visit selected places to experience the rugged mountain world, the special vegetation but also the isolation in this landscape. Because what shapes the people and their lives can be directly derived from the conditions of the landscape: The force of the weather changes, the inaccessibility but also the sublime nature that arises directly from it. »I feel that I have a true spritual connection with this land and its culture and want to share this with other photographers.«

Matt Bishop has been offering these workshops for several years and was surprised by their success himself from the beginning. The core of these workshops is to capture the special quality of the photographic experience.
