Photographing The Everyday in Birgunj
This workshop invites young photographers to reflect on how they see the simple, regular objects and events that occur every day around them, and question the narrative and documentary interest of their everyday lives. Frédéric will work with participants to build a meaningful photographic story with elements that might change the way they look at their lives and their context.
ABOUT THE TUTOR
Frédéric Lecloux is a traveler, writer and photographer. He was born in 1972 in Brussels and lives in France. His work is distributed by Vu’ Agency in Paris. He is represented by Gallery Emotion-Lydie Trigano, in Paris. The slowness and obsessive poetry of his photographic writing, combining inside portraits, everyday life objects and melancholic landscapes, resembles a therapeutic work of relief, be it on the routes of Nicolas Bouvier, in a profoundly mutating Nepal or trying to cope with his own ghosts in Belgium. He is the author of “Au coeur de l’Himalaya” (1998) and “Katmandou 2058″ (2003) published by La Renaissance du Livre, “Lentement vers l’Asie” by Glénat (2006) and “L’Usure du Monde” published by Le Bec en l’Air (2008). He has also worked for NGOs like Médecins Sans Frontières in the former Yougoslavia and Action against Hunger in Nepal.
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
This workshop is designed for beginner/intermediate level photographers and will require them to think very honestly about their photographic practice and their motivations, and to learn to take photos with this question in mind: why am I taking pictures? Participants should have a technical base in photography and should be comfortable shooting on manual function with a DSLR camera.
