This day long masterclass will look in-depth at photographer Yvonne Venegas’ work and also offers a unique chance for participants to show and discuss their work.

Her ongoing project, The Most Beautiful Brides of Baja California, focuses on moments of equivocation when her subjects hesitate between revealing an authentic gesture and adopting a socially acceptable pose.
