bayeux masterclass

In October 2013 the NOOR-Nikon Masterclass in Conflict Photography took place in Bayeux, France as a part of the ‘Rencontres Prix Bayeux-Calvados’, a festival for conflict reporting involving different disciplines. During three days ten young professional photographers shared experiences and their work with NOOR photographers Stanley Greene, Alixandra Fazzina and NOOR’s managing director Evelien Kunst.

“As a women you have advantages and disadvantages. I always like to take the opportunities that are offered to you as female photographer and try to cover stories that otherwise could not been told,” says Alixandra Fazzina during a presentation of her work. She shared her work and experiences, often long-term and very intimate, during a two-hour presentation.

One out of three days was devoted to secutity where NOOR photographers Stanley Greene and Alixandra Fazzina shared some useful insights and Grégoire Pouget from Reporters Without Borders (RSF) touched upon the usage of mobile devices and alternative communication tools. The work of the participants was screened in the presence of approximately 300 festival guests at the Nikon party following the evening presentations.
