Ces deux journées permettront de faire un point sur la pratique de chacun et d’envisager de nouvelles approches, de nouvelles manières d’agencer ce que l’on veut donner à voir.
Après avoir échangé précisément autour des travaux de chaque participant, Sylvie Hugues proposera des séances adaptées aux facultés mais aussi aux obstacles rencontrés par chacun.
Une démarche qui s’enrichira également avec la visite de quelques expositions et la découverte de plusieurs auteurs photographes qui viendront faire écho aux discussions et réflexions engagées.

Participants in this exciting, hands-on, two-day course will take stock of their work, consider fresh approaches and think about how to arrange what they want to show. They will work with Sylvie Hugues on editing past, present or unfinished projects.

The course will focus on the gaze, points of view and choices. First, participants will observe, share and plainly describe their intentions and step back from their work to gain some perspective.

In small groups and individual workshops, they will build or improve upon a series, adapting or rethinking their photographs with a medium, a project or a possible destination for them in mind. The goal is to choose a distance, give the pictures meaning and coherence, find relationships and a pattern between them and, sometimes, work on framing, contrast, a texture, etc.

Visiting shows and discovering other photographers’ work will enhance the course and echo the discussions.

Sylvie Hugues was born in Paris in 1965. After studying literature & cinema, photography becomes her passion, to such an extent that she made it her principal activity. In 1992, she participates in the creation of a new photography magazine, “Réponses Photo”, of which she has been the editor in chief between 1996 and 2014. In parallel, she is an author protographer.
