Berlin Architecture sessions - RAW & Uncharted

Decoding fine art and uncovering its purpose through architecture


Joel Tjintjelaar - better known as one of the pioneers of black-and-white fine art architectural photography as we know it today- is back to hosting a multi-day; in-person and on-location fine art architectural photography workshop again, in Germany's capital Berlin.

This will be unlike any other architecture workshop Joel ever taught as his objective is to make it transformative. Joel has been on a quest to find the deeper meaning behind art (and with it, life) through architecture while being informed by the philosophy of mind, psychology, and the latest insights in physics. He will share the importance of these relationships to understand art better and create more meaningful art through architecture photography. 

Learn more here on the concept of RAW & Uncharted architecture workshop sessions, the lecture topics, activities, and the objectives.

After a break of almost 10 years, Joel is eager and passionate to share his latest insights and teach the future generation of fine art architecture photographers everything it takes to evolve from a „photographer“ to a well-rounded artist. We start by decoding the concept of fine art and uncovering its purpose. And with that insight learn how to use the camera to create more than pretty images and to make true visual statements instead. To unify the technical with the emotional side to make art.

We are not just visiting the ubiquitous landmarks of Berlin, instead, we will have a meaningful mix of architectural structures that carry historical, cultural, or aesthetic meaning to understand and emphasize the importance of an emotional connection with what we wish to photograph and express. In other words, we are not looking for pretty Instagram images, but for structures to connect with emotionally and express ourselves through. Practical information is below.
