Whatever the photographs’ nature—sensitive and rooted in reality or more conceptual and based on a place, person or fact—consistency, dialogue between the images and a search for meaning will be at the heart of the discussion and the focus of attention.
Ms. Atwood will give each participant largely individualized support and advice depending on his or her progress, sensibility, commitment and goals. If necessary, the subjects will be drawn from contacts and locations (social, environmental and sports organizations, institutions, farms, communities, companies, artisans, etc.) pre-selected by the Rencontres d’Arles and jointly chosen early in the week.
The focus will be on overcoming fears, taking the right position, listening, feeling and finding a narrative’s leitmotiv. After the final editing session, the photographs will be printed out and exhibited on the last day of the course.
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.
