Description

WORKSHOP : EDITING THE UN-EDITABLE
WORKING TITLE: IMAGE RESEARCH AS AN ALTERNATIVE CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC POSITION

“Editing is the process of selecting and preparing written, photographic, visual, audible, or cinematic
material used by a person or an entity to convey a message or information. The editing process can
involve correction, condensation, organisation, and many other modifications performed with an
intention of producing a correct, consistent, accurate and complete piece of work.[1]”


The editing process often begins with the author's idea for the work itself, continuing as a collaboration
between the author and the editor as the work is created. Editing can involve creative skills,
human relations and a precise set of methods.[2][3]” - Wikipedia

WHO AM I:
My name is Christophe Charon. I studied art and fashion design at the Royal Academy in Antwerpen some lightyears ago!
My initial interest for art & fashion came from an avid "consumption" of magazines.
This confrontation with images made me curious to investigate the duality between how
Photography, art & fashion is being made and how it is represented.
This interest turned into my actual profession where i mostly focus on the image input/research, and how images are instigating a creative process.

Now, and especially many internet-years later, i still find the relation between the representation of a
product/idea through an image/images and the role of this constructed, manipulated, ... IMAGE
in our daily life one of the most relevant manifestation of our contemporary society and culture.

GOAL OF THE WORKSHOP :
Researching and editing existing images in order to illustrate an idea and how this collected material can generate the activity of making new images.
