A wink to “Des Clics et des classes”, organized within the Rencontres (a nation-wide operation devoted to sensitizing young people to photography), the workshops shown here have been selected by the galleries Lumière des Roses and Un Livre, une Image.
“I have been rummaging for pictures for several years but it is only recently that I began collecting pictures of school children and their classrooms, I just realized how fascinating these group pictures could be.
Among this important production by professional photographers, there are pictures that deserve a bit more attention. It is also the opportunity to honor the anonymous photographers that have marked our collective memories. Sometimes I find little documentary and aesthetical treasures.”
