Persistence, 2010 Joop Swart Masterclass

For the 17th Joop Swart Masterclass, each of the 12 participants produced a photo essay on the 2010 theme, Persistence. An edit of these essays has been published in a hardcover photo book entitled Persistence, which shares the context of each story and the photographer's ideas and approach.

The multifaceted theme stimulated an array of reactions and interpretations. At times, persistence was evident in the approach of the photographers to gain access to subjects. In some cases, persistence was demanded to endure working and exploring the story visually. For some, persistence was an invitation to delve into their own lives and explore existential issues.

The result was a rich range of images. From film with multiple exposures to digital color, from abstract, dreamlike storytelling to hard-edged documentary narrative, Persistence presents a variety of styles, interpretation and insight.

The following twelve photographers are included in the book with these stories:

Lurdes R. Basoli (Spain), The Garden
Maisie Crow (USA), This is Today until Tomorrow
Giulio Di Sturco (Italy), Liberia: Women's Land
Sarah Elliott (USA), Poor Choices
Adam Ferguson (Australia), Afghanistan: America at War
Andrea Gjestvang (Norway), Everybody Knows this is Nowhere
Lissette Lemus (El Salvador), The Long Road
Justin Maxon (USA), Slow Down...Breathe...Only this Life
Dominic Nahr (Switzerland), Pwani Kwa Bahari
Saiful Huq Omi (Bangladesh), The Disowned and the Denied
Ed Ou (Canada/Taiwan), Dancing with the Dead
Alvaro Ybarra Zavala (Spain), Kudera
