Antoine d'Agata


16-20 August 2021
New York, USA

About the

This workshop revolves around photography as a means for asserting a personal perception of the world. Looking beyond the purely documentary, images making up a diary or inventory allow their inventor to cut free from the constraints underlying the transcription of objective reality.
Antoine d’Agata’s concern is to pare down the photographic act to the need to recount ordinary or extreme experiences.

Each participant will be asked to examine the ultimate goal of his approach, to play an active part in his own images, and to work on the texture of reality. Since images, like words, only take on meaning when brought together, the workshop will focus on finding the most relevant form for each individual stance. Working with Antoine d’Agata, participants must be ready to photograph intensively throughout the workshop and to extend the limits of their approach. They will have to confront their obsessions and contradictions as they shape a series of images conveying in real or fictional terms their private relationship with the world.

A Magnum member since 2004, Antoine d’Agata won the Nièpce Prize in 2001. His many books include Stigma and Insomnia (Images en Manoeuvres) and Vortex (Atlantica) and Ice (Images en manoeuvre). Images that push back the boundaries of reportages make Antoine d’Agata one of France’s most fascinating photographers.
