Back in December I won the Connecting Generations photo competition. One of the prizes was free participation in a workshop of my choice at the Rencontres d'Arles. I got there one day before the workshop started and left a day after it had finished, and of course I didn't sit around with my camera in my backpack during those days.
The pictures from the workshop that made it into the exhibition at the end of the workshop will be posted soon, followed by some outtakes.
Essays handed in. Sun in the sky. Trains on time.
Once again a bunch of crazy photographers met to walk around London in the rain and take pictures. This time the get-together had a slightly more international feel: Olivier and I represented Luxembourg (we're used to the rain and the cold). Alison and Mikey from the Photography and Modelling Society represented Bermuda and Barbados, respectively (they're not used to temperatures below 15°C). The four of us who are or have been studying in the UK met up with Natalya, Andi, Robert, Dain and Matthew. Some of their photos can be found in the DPChallenge.com forums, here. Apart from taking photos, by walking about three miles we also contributed to the Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours.
