Fotografía Narrativa con J-E Atwood

Nacida en Nueva York y vive en París desde 1971, Jane Evelyn Atwood es una de los fotoperiodistas más importantes del mundo. En 1976, Atwood compró su primera cámara y comenzó a tomar fotografías de un grupo de prostitutas de la calle en París. Fue parte de la fuerza de estas fotografías que Atwood recibió el primer premio W. Eugene Smith, en 1980, por otra historia que había comenzado a trabajar: los niños ciegos. Antes de esto, ella nunca había publicado una foto.

En los años siguientes, Atwood ha llevado a cabo una serie de proyectos cuidadosamente seleccionados-entre ellos un reportaje de 18 meses de un regimiento de la legión extranjera, a raíz de los soldados a Beirut y el Chad, una historia de cuatro y medio meses en la primera persona con el SIDA en Francia y que le permitiría ser fotografiado para su publicación en la prensa (Atwood se quedó con él hasta su muerte), y un estudio de cuatro años de las víctimas de las minas terrestres que la llevó a Camboya, Angola, Kosovo, Mozambique y Afganistán -siempre con la misma actitud personal y apasionado.


Espero que un workshop como éste pueda ayudar a cada uno a tomar mejores fotografías y a entender mejor cómo contar una historia con imágenes". –Jane Evelyn Atwood
