Participants in this exciting two-month course will complete a personal project, taking advantage of the experience of an immense photographer and the energy and eyes of others sharing the same passion. During individual and group sessions, the goal will be to clarify their vision by working on a personal project. Interviews and photo selection sessions will help them specify an approach, define a subject and commit to it without getting lost. Shots taken individually between sessions will be analyzed and edited directly with Ms. Atwood in order to refine the approach and gradually create a coherent series.
During the group courses, participants will compare their visions, discover and understand other approaches, receive advice to help them position themselves and look at their own work differently. There will also be time for more theoretical discussions, especially on specific cases and projects carried out by Ms. Atwood and/or other photographers. Many topics will be addressed, from the delimitation of a subject to the choice of medium, editing methods and personal commitment.

REGISTRATION
Pre-registration/submission of approximately 30 photographs/some words about your goals and an idea for a project
Quick registration confirmation.
The Rencontres educational team will contact participants to make sure they possess and know how to use the various tools required for video discussions and the submission of files to an online platform.


JANE EVELYN ATWOOD
Lives and works in Paris, France.
Jane Evelyn Atwood’s work attests to the close relationships she has forged with her subjects over long stretches of time. Fascinated by people and the idea of exclusion, she manages to enter worlds most of us ignore or choose to ignore. She is the author of 10 books (the latest are Pigalle People, 1978-1979 and Le Bec en l'air, 2018) and her work has won prestigious international awards. In 2011, the Maison européenne de la Photographie in Paris hosted her first major retrospective. In 2018, she exhibited at the Rencontres d'Arles.
