Werker 5 — Photography Lesson 1 (2011) is the first issue from a series of photography lessons that Werker Magazine will sporadically distribute integrated in other publications in affinity.
This issue presents unconscious ‘worker photography’ made by amateurs on their first photography lessons. Photography is commonly teached focusing purely on its technicality. This conception of the medium, impulsed by the industries of the sector, fetishes the camera and promotes a ridiculous set of stereotyped imagery. Although photography has a greater capacity that often goes beyond our intentions: it both reveals where we stand and where we place the other.
