To encourage young people to interpret images and bring them into contact with artworks, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie offers special guided visits for young people.

To coincide with the Month of Photography there will be workshops for children 6 to 11 years old and 12 to 16 years old. This educational, creative and playful approach to photography takes place in two stages:

• Visit to the exhibition
Accompanied by an expert guide, children discover some of the great names in contemporary photography via the MEP collection. They are introduced to key principles of photography such as framing, point of view, composition, digital images, traditional photography, etc.

• A practical photo workshop
Accompanied by a photographer, children practice the technique of the Luminogramme.
This graphic technique takes its inspiration from one of the fundamentals of photography: painting with light. Children write or draw patterns with a flashlight in total darkness in front of a camera. They take away their picture as a souvenir of this unusual experience.
