ANTOINE GONIN VISITS
THE SCHOOL OF PHOTOGRAPHY

17.10.2008

Антуан Гонен

 








The School of Photography hosted a constructive meeting with the French photographer Antoine Gonin. The discussion was devoted to industrial photography. The author commented on his work over the project “Eulogy to the Future” (“Eloge de l’avenir).
Gonin’s professional work is initially related to taking pictures of industrial objects for documentary-applied commercial purposes. However, carrying out his everyday work the photographer felt an urge to go beyond mere technical objectives. He saw that industrial structures and constructions, impressive with their power and peculiar beauty of the form, can become a subject of creative photography. The material for the author’s six-year-long project “Eulogy to the Future” was captured at the biggest industrial enterprises, transport infrastructure and scientific research centers of France.
The meeting was organized with support of the Embassy of France in the Republic of Belarus.
