plateforme d'échanges autour du métier de photographes en Afrique 12 1

Afrique in visu

Afrique in visu, première plateforme d'échanges autour du métier de photographe en Afrique, a été initiée en octobre 2006 au Mali. Après l'ouverture d'une cellule d'expérimentation du projet au Mali et au Maroc, l'équipe d'Afrique in visu étend son action sur l'ensemble du continent en particulier en République du Congo, République Démocratique du Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Tunisie ...

Le projet Afrique in visu est devenu une association de loi 1901 depuis le 3 juillet 2007.Vous pouvez nous soutenir en adhérant !

La plateforme participative et contributive www.afriqueinvisu.org met en réseau les professionnels de l'image du continent africain. Cette interface web est un outil de communication et de diffusion pour les photographes qui permet un échange de savoir-faire autour de l'image.

L'équipe d'Afrique in visu accompagne la mise en place de projets photographiques (appui aux photographes, montage de projet, mises en relation- fondations, presse, institutions, fixeurs- en Afrique ou à l'étranger, articles, relais et conseils artistiques auprès de festivals...).

Afrique in visu was born from an observation: that the photographic sector in Africa is lacking in some important areas - including a lack of agencies, organising bodies and training centres - as well as suffering from somewhat undeveloped and incoherent cultural policies. Moreover, the few existing organisations prefer to call on the photographic skills of countries to the North. They don't collaborate or draw on the skills available in neighbouring countries, even though the problematics of these countries are closer to their own and more adapted to their needs.

The project grew out of a study carried out by Jeanne Mercier, doctorate researcher at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) on the subject of Les 6 èmes Rencontres Africaines de la Photographie de Bamako.
This analysis explored the various problems which an African country like Mali faces in terms of its photographic sector.

After a series of discussions on photographic practices with photographer Baptiste de Ville d'Avray, the idea was born : a network which would establish mutual training programs, an exchange of knowledge and skills, taking as its starting point the existing skills in each country in order to help them to face common issues and thus to evolve continually.
