 Claudine Doury master class 2013 may 26/may 31 


In this workshop, Claudine Doury invites us to use reality to create our own fiction. She invites us to engage in a reflection on the various ways to draw on the real to tell a story.

Attendees will create a fictional narrative based on their own way of looking at the world, on their interests and obsessions by using the natural environment and spirit of the place. Attendees will tailor a project summoning their experiences by focusing especially on their hidden desires and wishes. Claudine Doury will help students in putting together their creation and weaving the central theme of their story. After the shootings, the focus is put on editing in order to constitute a photographic sequence that takes into account the running order, the way images are put in perspective and juxtaposed. The series will then be displayed and a portfolio will be put together in the process.

Outline of the workshop:
-Analysis of the attendees’ previous work
-Discussion leading to the design of the personal project.
-Daily photo shoots.
-Individual and collective analysis of the shootings.
-Selection of images in order to create a series.
-Attendees will constitute a portfolio using small size prints.
-Display of the series and concluding thoughts on the workshop.

-Any documents (pictures, portfolio) allowing to assess your experience, skills and style.
-Digital camera(s) (Being based in an isolated Corsican village, it is difficult to work with analog photography - Digital single-lens reflex camera available on request)
