This year, Nikon is supporting a workshop with Magnum Photos on the theme of “At the gates of the D-Day landing beaches”. Led by Lorenzo Meloni, this workshop invites participants to create the photo essay of their choice by delving into the history of the Second World War and visiting the landmarks of the D-Day landings. Following five days of shooting and editing, during which Nikon France will be offering participants cameras to use, a selection of the work will be shown at this event.
It is also an opportunity to look back at the work of Lorenzo Meloni, a member of Magnum Photos since 2020. Famous for his striking photography in the Middle East, he has covered some of the most crucial battles in the war against the Islamic State, and is interested in deeper themes such as history and post-colonialism. His photographs have been exhibited at international festivals around the world. He has worked with a number of major newspapers including The Telegraph, Time, Vanity Fair and Le Monde, for which he recently covered the war in Ukraine.
