»Declination of a photographic narrative«

Cédric Gerbehaye

May it be for the here or the elsewhere, when one photographs in the form of documentary, several steps are to be undertaken, which is what this workshop will scrutinize and analyze in depth. From the very first location spotting to a true understanding of what is at stake on the field; from the writing of the synopsis to the elaboration of a personal and emotional method of working; from the shooting to the choice of the medium of diffusion (press, exhibition, book, web) – each of these stages are fundamental to be at the heart of one’s own true photography. In parallel with a theoretical approach, based on several portfolio reviews and a presentation of his own photographic work and some multimedia productions, Cédric will suggest a few practical exercises in which the participant should immerse himself in a location, in order to develop a personal and daring photographic approach.

Cédric Gerbehaye’s work has been awarded and exhibited internationally. He received grants from Magnum Foundation, Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Scam and Journalism Fund. He has published four books to date: Congo in Limbo, Land of Cush, Sète#13 and D’entre eux. His work is found in collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Musée de la Photographie in Charleroi, MEP in Paris, and FoMu in Antwerp. Cédric is represented by the MAPS photo agency.
