Documentary Reportage Photography Workshop
June 12, 2012
by Patrick Zachmann
From 1982 to 1984, Patrick Zachmann worked both on a project on highway landscapes, backed by the French Ministry of Culture, and on the challenges of integration facing young immigrants in the northern neighborhoods of Marseilles.
"I believe that when one gains professional experience and artistic practice during several years, to pass on a little bit of know-how is a way to allow young photographers to get what one has taken and learnt from others." -Patrick Zachmann.
