ArtFotoMode organizes in Marseille an exclusive workshop with Harry Gruyaert from July 10th to 14th 2023.
Harry Gruyaert is a pioneer of European colour photography. Since the 1970’s, Gruyaert has developed an extraordinarily poetic oeuvre of intensely complex images, captured on his travels in many parts of the world. Gruyaert has a dérive sensibility, photographing portals into the multi-layered urban environment and we, the viewer, are seduced both inside and outside the experience of his images. In the introduction of his book, Between Worlds, the writer and curator, David Campany describes Gruyaert as, ‘the very embodiment of the speculative photographer, the itinerant observer, moving through the world with no greater or lesser purpose than to notice and picture it.’
Harry Gruyaert rarely conducts workshops, therefore these 5-days will be a rare opportunity to be taught and inspired by this highly influential photographer. Marseille is the vibrant location where participants will be encouraged to wander the streets and boulevards, and visually absorb the rich diversity of this city, allowing chance encounters to discover photographic possibilities.
July 10, 2023 to July 14, 2023
