I've been pretty quiet on this blog lately, but I'm back today and up for a fresh start.
During that period of time, I put my camera away and digged into the world of photography, meeting with various people from the commercial photo industry (agents, producers, photo agencies), browsing a lot through online portfolios (found really inspiring the project Yangtze, The Long River by Nadav Kander), visiting museums (discovered the work of Alexander Rodchenko at the foam museum), seeing the world through images.
Here's how I see myself taking a new start this year:
I'm available to join forces on production missions, so please contact me if you need extra help (I'm French, based in Amsterdam, 8 years exp. in advertising and a great passion for photography).
I'll keep on making pictures of kids in my own way -- I want my photographs to be real and have substance. I like to be surprised and see how and what the kids bring to the photograph. I'll be patient and wait for the right moment. I may explore portraiture.
I'll document my own kids of course, but also their friends, and the friends of their friends. And if it works out well, I may develop personal series for private use or do portraits on location.
Let's see how this goes. Any thoughts, ideas I'd love to hear it - you can leave a comment below.
