Marie SORDAT

A story of sensitivity: from shooting to editing / M. Sordat
Drawing on her multiple experiences as a photographer but also as a curator, Marie Sordat will accompany each and everyone with expertise and kindness in the construction of a personal photographic ensemble.

It will be largely a question of sensitivity, of the relationship to what surrounds us but also of the relationship we have with photography. A step that will allow us to specify our desires, our stakes, and our personal objectives that will guide us throughout the day.

The approaches can be very diverse, turned towards the outside, the street, the others, the city, the spaces around, but also largely directed towards one’s own history, one’s own obsessions.

After having defined a certain amount of expectations and photographic intentions, the process will go through sessions of shooting to experiment, find one's distance, validate aesthetic choices and sometimes leave one's "comfort zone".

These moments will be systematically followed by editing and exchanges sessions to cross the glances, to confront the perceptions and to select the photographs which will be used as references for the following shots.

This alternation of sessions will allow to refine little by little a coherent set of photographs which will be printed and showed the last day.

This last step will also allow us to address certain questions related to the way to present our work in the form of a hanging. It will then be a question of rhythm, correspondence, breathing, title, format... The series will be approached in a new perspective giving rise to certain adjustments.

Those wishing to do so will be able to work only on photographs taken before the workshop. The work will then focus on editing and various perspectives of diffusion.
