”As Artistic Director of the Photoreporter Festival in St. Brieuc, I have the opportunity to give grants for documentary projects or at least to follow them to see if we want to fund them in the future. However, instead of the promise of a grant, my main help to photographers is that I can give constructive advice on how to build, expand and market photographic projects. The advice is always based on the contents of the project. I focus on the link between contents and form, and I am able to identify where they do or do not match up."
