Dear visitor! Welcome to the new ISSP website!
We hope that you like the new re-designed version as much as we do! We will be perfecting it in the coming week.
More good news: the applications for the International Summer School of Photography 2011 are open! The complete information on ISSP 2011 is now online and we are looking forward to receiving your incoming applications. Deadline - 8th of May 2011!
Now, this is not a 1st April joke, its official: the ISSP international summer school is moving to Kuldīga! Though it all happened a little suddenly, we are happy with the new situation. The new location, Pelči boarding school, is 4 km away from town, so we’ll keep all the intimacy of the campus. Kuldīga is a gem and a runner up UNESCO world heritage site, it will for sure charm everyone.
Besides, we will have a real castle all for ourselves - imagine ! :)
Many, many things in process. By the end of the month, we will be ready to announce the applications for Summer School 2011. You can already find some information about 2011 workshops and teachers here. We will also have a brand - new website, and more exciting news coming up soon!
ISSP invites all interested in Black and White analogue process and looking for lab facilities to become 2011 members of our BW Lab in Andrejsala (Riga). Lab members can use fully equipped ISSP BW lab for a year - pretty much without any time limits. Full info in Latvian below. For more info, please call Arnis :)
Hallo everyone! The dates for International Summer School of Photography 2011 are 6 - 14 August, and we plan to announce the applications as usual around end March - beginning of April. Stay tuned!

Last but not least - Peter Bialobrzeski on ISSP (17 October 2010):
ISSP 2010 was the best photography event I have participated in this year. Teaching there was special, a childhood-like summer with plenty of lovely people, fellow teachers and workshop participants likewise. The workshop was an intense work experience with a lovely holiday feel about it!
