La Grotte (the cave) is a collective of photographers based in Brussels. Created in 2012 under a common impulse, La Grotte now gathers five photographers – Bertrand Cavalier, Lucie Dufour, Massao Mascaro, Gilles Ribero and Maud Faivre – as a response to young photographers' lack of visibility. The collective takes to heart self-publishing, and considers it an art form in itself and a way to speak up loudly. The metaphor of Cave as a giant camera obscura was a natural choice for all of us. It embodies the idea and process of photography in a specific place, and recalls what still matters in photography today, namely the need to go out, seize the light and come back with it.
