Income-generating program for Malian photographers
In February 2010 we launched our educational and income-generating program for stock photographers in cooperation with the Malian photography school CFP Bamako. Through a continuous effort the program helps Malian photographers grow their own sustainable businesses. The program is supported by Danish Centre for Culture and Development and the Embassy of Denmark, Mali.
Traveling exhibition with contemporary Afghan photography
Launched March 2014, the traveling exhibition Afghan Tales includes a diverse selection of more than 25 photographers, both male and female, ranging from internationally featured photojournalists to artists working in photography. Due to its modular nature the exhibition can be modified to fit museums, private galleries, and public spaces.
Professionel organisation for Afghan photographers
Afghan Photography Network came to life through a series of discussions with several Afghan photo agencies and leading independent Afghan photographers. In Afghanistan the main partner is The 3rd Eye Photojournalism Center but the initiative is open to all photographers, agencies, institutions and exhibition spaces in Afghanistan. The project is supported by CKU Centre for Culture and Development and the Embassy of Denmark, Afghanistan.
Promotional network for African photographers
African Photography Network is an online resource for African photography. By uniting and showcasing photographers it will seek to raise awareness of what is happening in the field of photography in Africa. Few regions remain as photographically misrepresented as Africa and African Photography Network exists to support and promote African Photographers, who are taking back control of the portrayal of their countries.
Commerce & Culture is experienced in offering photography workshops to a wide range of partners. Previously we have had the opportunity to work with talented photographers in countries like Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Mali, and Kenya. The workshops cover topics in editorial and commercial photography through which we strive to equip photographers to tap into the many opportunities of the global photography market.
