Announcing Ali Hanoon’s Photography Workshop

We are happy to announce Spanish photographer Ali Hanoon’s photography workshop at Studio Kura. As a fun fact, he is Spanish like me and translation to and from Japanese will be trivial. Not that I don’t enjoy using the English language!

Ali will talk about his work, then we will go and take pictures around Studio Kura (it’s a beautiful place), and then we will come back, see everyone’s pictures, and exchange opinions with Ali.

Be it a reflex or a cellphone, I bet everyone has a camera. Wouldn’t you like to try new things with it? Ali will share his tech and his sense with us!
