will be back in 2021...

This day-and-a-half course will subtly combine reflection, discussion and fieldwork. Guillaume Herbaut will comment on the work brought in by each participant and prepare the afternoon session before accompanying the group on a “real-life” reportage, which will focus on a large gathering linked to Provençal traditions and bringing thousands of people together, including horsemen, musicians and Arlésiennes in their precious costumes. Observing, anticipating and reaching preset goals will be part of this session, which will continue until shortly after nightfall. The quest for a unique perspective, avoiding “expected” images, will guide all the projects. The next day will focus on editing—an opportunity to assert a point of view, meet the initial goals and create a small personal series.

Guillaume Herbaut, born in 1970, was a founding member of l’Oeil Public. Prize-winner of the Fondation de France in 1999, he has dedicated himself for some years now to historical places, filled with symbols and memory. His work called Tchernobylsty, won the Kodak Critics Prize in 2001 and was published at Le Petit Camarguais in October 2003. Herbaut also won the Fuji Book Prize the following year. Herbaut has been a recipient of a grant from the French Ministry of Culture and 3P. Visa pour l’Image exposed his work in September 2004. The same year Herbaut was winner of the Lucien Hervé Prize. In 2009 he won the second price « contemporary issue » at the World Press Photo. Today he carries on with the aim of revealing unseen tragedies.Herbaut’s work has been exhibited in solo or part of group shows at the Jeu de Paume Museum in Paris, at “la maison Rouge”, at Foto España and at the silverstein gallery in NY. Guillaume Herbaut has produced documentaries for French Radio and been a teacher and mentor in workshops in Russia, Spain, Switzerland and France.
