    What you will learn in this course.

    Bieke Depoorter is a Magnum Photo's photographer and an award-winning artist. Her work explores the complexity of the relationship between the creator and subject. Her latest project (still ongoing) explores the disappearance and life of a man she met in the streets of Portland in 2015, Michael.

    This piece is supported by Canon and talks to how Bieke creates her work and projects; what drives her to capture the images and how she has built a career from this.

    Whether used for stills photography or filmmaking, a camera offers the user a unique opportunity to tell a story. Here at Wex Photo Video, we recognise the value of those stories and believe they all deserve to be heard, as they provide an insight into the spectrum of human experiences lived across a nation of creative people.

    Our #ChangeTheImage campaign showcases a selection of talented individuals from a variety of cultural backgrounds, all of whom live and work in the UK. Join us for a week of inspiring, entertaining and educational events that reflect the diverse passions, skills and views of our community.

    This video will be available on the Wex YouTube channel. You can register here.
