RSI ReteDue – Una foto al giorno

An interview by Monica Bonetti on Voci dipinte (RSI Rete Due) on January 17th, 2020 about my next book 2020 which will published by Till Schaap Edition.

Una foto al giorno

All’inizio del 2020 il fotografo Didier Ruef ha avviato un progetto che prevedeva di realizzare ogni giorno uno scatto, per documentare nel corso dell’anno viaggi, incontri, a volte anche semplicemente il suo sguardo su giornate qualsiasi. Non sapeva evidentemente allora che il 2020 si sarebbe trasformato nell’anno che in pochi dimenticheranno nella sua eccezionalità.Un anno molto mediatizzato, in cui il consumo di informazione è aumentato un po’ in tutti i settori e che anche dal punto di vista delle immagini è stato raccontato in quantità molto abbondante. Ma l’abbondanza di immagini non sempre significa automaticamente abbondanza di informazioni perché il contesto, la cornice sono altrettanti elementi di lettura che a volte completano altre confondono, in ogni caso stratificano l’interpretazione di chi osserva. Il progetto di Didier Ruef diventerà presto un libro che a Voci Dipinte sfogliamo in anteprima insieme al suo autore e allo storico Pietro Montorfani coordinatore dell’ufficio patrimonio culturale della città di Lugano.”.

Fête de la Musique. Photographies et éditing – Leica Akademie Suisse / 19, 20-27 Juin 2020

Ce workshop est axé autour de la Fête de la Musique en y associant la prise d’images et l’éditing photographique.

Un travail photographique s’apparente au processus de vinification : d’abord on vendange les images, autant que possible, ensuite on met en bouteille les meilleures grappes, les meilleures prises, en écartant la majorité des photos, pour parvenir à un produit équilibré, fruité et agréable. En photo, ce processus s’appelle l’« éditing ». Cet atelier explorera les diverses façons de développer un style personnel dans le storytelling, autrement dit dans la construction narrative d’un essai photographique ou d’une recherche personnelle. Didier Ruef abordera les notions de force, d’harmonie et de composition de l’image. L’objectif du workshop est de guider chaque photographe vers sa propre façon de regarder et de l’aider à créer un style personnel.
