Intimate portraits have the ability to help people reveal a part of themselves. This is increasingly difficult when working with vulnerable populations. This workshop shares techniques on how to get the best from your subjects, the psychology of relationship building, and how to get beyond discomfort in portraiture.

Join artist and activist Muna Malik as she hosts a workshop on portrait photography and discusses how photographers can use their practice to bridge cultural divides and cultivate greater inclusion and awareness of vulnerable and underrepresented communities.

Make sure to also check out Muna Malik’s Faces Never Forgotten Exhibition at Photoville LA.
