Photographing “Human” ―Photo workshop at Komaba, summer 2014―

Knowledge is embodied. If we are to challenge the current situation of knowledge, criticized for its predisposed situatedness in “normal body” (e.g. male / able), then our starting point would have to be providing a mean of representation for knowledge in “marginal body” (e.g. female / disable).
In this workshop, we use photography as the mean to capture the world from “a system different from language” (Tagi 2003, 92), for language is also prone to be situated in “normal body”.

Lecturer: Maki Ezure (Photographer)
Born in 1980 in Tokushima, Maki now lives in Kanagawa. She graduated from Tokyo Shashin Gakuen (Tokyo academy of photography) in 2010, started her career as a freelance camera person in the same year. She takes mainly portrait photographs of 350 families a year. Her interest is also in the field of birth and care. She is now writing a photo essay regularly for the magazine, AERA with baby.
