Singaporean Zhuang Wubin will lecture a photography workshop at Zero Station in District 3 from July 14 to 20.
The eight-day workshop is for photographers and artists who want to develop personal photo projects, aiming to take each participant through the process of developing his/her project, starting from the conceptualization to the realization/presentation of the work.

Participants can propose projects that are documentary or conceptual in nature.
They can use the workshop to continue their ongoing work or they can go out and shoot a new project, work entirely on photoshop or with found, vernacular photographs.
Not being a technical workshop, the event’s focus is on conceptualization, execution, editing and presentation.
Wubin is a writer focusing on the photographic practices of Southeast Asia.
As a 2010 recipient of the research grant from Prince Claus Fund (Amsterdam), Zhuang is an editorial board member of Trans-Asia Photography Review, a journal published by the Hampshire College and the University of Michigan Scholarly Publication Office.
As a photographer, Zhuang uses the medium to understand the culture and history of the Chinese communities in Southeast Asia.
Supported by Lee Foundation, Chinese Muslims in Indonesia (2011) is his third photographic monograph and features essays by historian Dr. Charles Coppel, curator Enin Supriyanto and Yenny Wahid.
To apply for the workshop, enthusiasts have to submit an application form with 20 images, a project proposal to be developed during the workshop and a few paragraphs about their background in photography and why they want to participate.
Admission is US$10 for Vietnamese and US$20 for overseas participants.
