Born in 1979, Aurélien Foucault (aka “Фуко”) soon got fed up with French chauvinism and went to spend his 18th year in Sweden.
He then went to live one year ‘Bohemian style’ in Naples where he celebrated his 20th birthday drinking up Cinema History with a pint of olive oil.
After being tired of skipping dinners to go to the cinema or to buy a record, he decided to find a job that would allow him to live abroad.
Undercover as a French teacher, he became a Whisky expert in Scotland and then went on to be a Vodka specialist in Russia.
Possibly under the influence of local dumplings, he stayed 2 years in Siberia where he met his wife.
After nearly drowning in the frozen Baïkal, he decided to move on towards new adventures. He then moved to Wuhan, China and directed the documentary film “Of shadows and men” which has been selected in various international film festival.
His body of work is composed of a personal approach to documentary photography and an aesthetic research on the themes of memory, intimacy and the five senses.
Currently based in Beijing, he is now working on new projects and available for all kinds of assignments & exhibitions.

Volunteer Overseas Photographer

Found today on Charityjob.com
I need to share that to see if I am the only one finding that extremely shocking.

“Jubilee Action, an international children’s charity, are looking for experienced photographers aged 21 and over to accompany our Head of International Programmes on one week expeditions to our projects around the world. The first visit will be to Rwanda in April, but there is a possibility of future trips to other regions of Africa, Asia and South America throughout 2011.

This a voluntary position which means that you will be asked to pay for your own flight and expenses. Whether you can only offer one week or multiple weeks over the year, we’d be happy to hear from you.

This is an amazing opportunity to develop your portfolio and have a great time in the process. We need you to have your own digital equipment and require the photography to be of a good standard so it can be used in various fundraising and marketing materials. Please note that we work with vulnerable children and youth and require that all photographs be in line with child protection policies.

If you would like to find out more about Jubilee Action’s work and this opportunity, please visit our website or give us a call."

Should I apply and offer to pay the flights & expenses of the rest of the crew? Oh, and maybe I could donate my photographic equipment at the end, shouldn’t I ?

Or am I just too cynical and some of you think this is a fair offer?
