On the occasion of the month of photography in Geneva, the Centre des arts is organising a large exhibition of students' work devoted to this medium of expression. Considered "easy" because of its extreme democratisation, photography is, quite on the contrary, extremely complex.
 
To prepare for this exhibition, students reflected on the many parameters that determine photographic work: what is the intent, the approach, the theme, the content? Which form to choose, what style and what composition? This process continued by exploring various devices and techniques. "Simple" photo or joint use with other materials; what mount to use, what framing?
 
The result of intense reflection on the part of La Grande Boissière Secondary School students, this exhibition also explores the multiplicity and depth of this art. A rewarding perspective in the era of smartphones.
