Stories We Tell is an inclusive participatory photography project to enable local people with little or no experience of photography to develop the skills necessary to create and share reflections of their own community while having fun.

What to expect

Using the participants’ own cameras, this project aims to help people connect to their community and themselves. Each session will be facilitated via Zoom and start with an introduction to the topic, and a review of the previous weeks’ photos. The sessions will be designed to build skills and confidence. At the end of the 8 week online course, there will be an exhibition at Poplar Union of the work produced.

This course will be taking place online via Zoom. Please book your ticket by selecting the 3 Dec and this will give you access to the whole 8 week course. You must book in advance so we can send you the Zoom details prior to each session.

About Pierre Bureau

Stories We Tell, Photography Workshop, Pierre Bureau, Poplar Union, free photography project, poplar, tower hamlets

I’m a photographer and workshop facilitator living in East London. My photographs have been published in The Guardian, the BBC, Geographical, and in 2020 I’ve been shortlisted for The Wellcome Photography Prize. As a photographer who is passionate about human resilience and compassion, I’m helping find solutions through doing photography workshops using photography to explore the poetics of daily life in a playful way and challenges our fears and anxieties.”

Testimonials

Pierre’s workshop has helped me to rediscover the immense beauty of my surroundings, even in the “pressure cooker” of this global pandemic. The practical tips he shared each week made it fun and easy to capture such beauty. I really loved the final assignment whereby we presented a personal story using a select few photographs. It really helped me to see myself, the man behind the camera, in an entirely new way. This workshop has shown me that Pierre is not only a very skilled photographer and teacher, but a man who absolutely loves people! Thank you for sharing your passion with us, Pierre!” – Kenny

The photography workshop became my ‘lifeline’ during lockdown, giving my daily walks both purpose and energy and enabling me to ‘see’ London in a totally different way.” – Paula

Each week we had a new challenging assignment that was exciting. Our group was very friendly and I appreciated your way of teaching and your patience. I was scared during the pandemic but meeting once a week and taking photographs calmed my mind. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience.” – Kaniz

“I just completed a workshop with Pierre. He is a fantastic tutor. He explains things very well and with such enthusiasm, that you feel really inspired and encouraged by him. His passion comes through so much and he includes everyone in the group, giving us all an opportunity to share, in a non rushed way. Pierre has taught us about different techniques and ideas which have really helped us all become creative with our shots. I will never forget the tips he has given me and I’m hoping he does more workshops/courses, so I can learn even more. Thank you Pierre.” – Carol
