Photo: and the Photography Education Trust in association with A4 Arts Foundation hosted the third of its 10:10 platforms on 20 Feb 2018 in Cape Town.

10:10 is an interaction format dedicated to creating the possibility for emerging and practicing photographers to test new ideas, to develop (or sustain) bodies of work, build further personal and critical skills and receive critical feedback.

The presentation is an ice-breaking format where 10 photographers each have 10 minutes to present and talk about their work. Other than their peer response, expert respondents are invited to give feedback and guidance.

For this round Jo Ractcliffe (Photographer & Educator), Dorothee Kreutzfeldt (Artist & Educator) as well as John Fleetwood were the respondents. 

10 Photographers;

Chaze Matakala
Elijah Ndoumbé
Jansen van Staden
Jody Brand
Lauren Theunissen
Lee-Ann Olwage
Masixole Feni
Sean Metelerkamp
Thandiwe Msebenzi
Wandie Mesatywa

Along with 10:10, 10:X is a more in-depth week-long encounter with 10 photographers presenting work in critique sessions with feedback from a range of experts. Whereas the 10:10 aims to break the ice, as an informal gathering with colleagues, the10:X is a more developed form of mentorship towards critique.
