“Together, alone”: for the first online workshop entirely led in French organized by the photo agency Magnum, Jean Gaumy invites photographers to explore notions of empathy and empathy in photography.
During four weeks and through group meetings and one-to-ones, you will work on a photographic project in relation with these themes of distance, the relationship to your subject and to people.
Jean Gaumy will guide you from conception through to realization.
This workshop is open to both amateur and professional photographers who would benefit from direct advice for their research or continuation of a project.
Each photographer will be expected to work throughout the workshop in order to benefit fully from the feedback from Jean Gaumy.

“My physical distance, when photographing people, is usually between 3 and 5 meters. Sometimes less. I feel like I’m in the middle of subjects, among them, yet at the same time I’m not really present. The contradiction is there: I am an observer. My mental and physical behaviour naturally sets me apart. This situation is unique to photographers. I have an expression: “All alone together”. It stems from a word that I like a lot, coined by Robert Charlebois, “solidaritude”, a contraction of solidarity and solitude. Solidarity is at the heart of my work.”
