The intimate will be the common thread of these days and it is the way of telling the other, their interior, their essence, often invisible which will occupy the daily reflections and realizations.
The relationship with the model will thus be one of the aspects addressed precisely. The importance will be in particular to create a security framework which allows the person photographed to feel confident and thus be able to show themselves vulnerable, in their nudity, literally and figuratively.

It will then be a question of a fair, respectful, never predatory distance which allows us to guide while knowing how to step aside in order to leave room for the other.
Isabelle Chapuis, photographer who also explores photography as a therapeutic tool, will place the notion of “taking care” at the heart of the approach.

In order to stimulate and support the creative process of each person, it will propose a simple methodology which allows a production to be carried out in a serene manner and open to imagination.

A process which will involve the creation of a sketch mood board and which will specify the shooting and editing system as well as a retouching phase of the selected photographs.

During the process, the photographic portrait will be approached in a broad way, in the sense of identity, with the possibility of exploring the image according to your own photographic writing. How to tell the other, their intimacy, their personality, the places and materials that surround them, which can help us to understand them, to feel them…

On the last day, a selection of the work carried out will be presented in the form of a small exhibition.
This last phase will allow us to find and put down words that will accompany the finalized series.
