Workshop with Lorenzo Castore and Niccolo' Hebel
Coteau Neighbourhood House
10 participants (selected according to the order of registration)
The workshop is aimed primarily at 15-20 year olds.
This year the attention of several photographers invited to Deauville in residence for Planches contact was focused on young people. The objective is to give young people a direct voice, by involving them in a workshop where they will be both directors and actors of their stories, while learning the basics of photography, from the shooting to the selection and presentation of the work done. Unlike photos taken compulsively with a smartphone and immediately published on social networks, this workshop, led by Lorenzo Castore and coordinated by Niccoló Hebel, proposes, through the use of cameras, to think aboutthe desired, instantaneous or constructed image and then to work on a selection, with the aim of creating a collective outdoor exhibition/installation, "glued" on the large walls of the new playground in the Coteau district of Deauville. The exhibition will also be presented at the Maison du festival / salle des fêtes during the inauguration weekend of Planches Contact.
Born in Florence in 1973, Lorenzo Castore is a significant representative of the new documentary photography, he tells the world with a particular sensitivity and an original language, as during his residency in Deauville for the festival Planches contact with the project Théo & Salomé.
