For more than 10 years now, Paris-based photographer Kavdij Sluban as been conducting long-term photography workshops in prisons for young people. He lives in the prisons during the workshops, makes his own photographs, and teaches the young prisoners about many aspects of photography. We are pleased to present a portfolio of his work here, accompanied by an interview with Sluban, conducted by Peggy Sue Amison.
A small French publisher, L'oeil électrique éditions, recently released a bilingual (French/English) DVD that shows the photographs by Sluban; photographs by 80 young prisoner/students; a documentary about Sluban with Henri Cartier-Bresson; and a discussion about photography among Sluban and his students. It is a clever presentation, with original music by Scrape Project, and a 32-page bilingual book. The DVD makes for a nice follow-up to our presentation of Sluban's work here in Lens Culture.
