Camille Picquot and Tono Mejuto


In 2013, Tono Mejuto, a young photographer from Madrid, charmed the Planche(s) Contact Jury with a piece entitled “Le jamais vu de Deauville”. Blurred crowds, such as those in paparazzi images, form a compact mass from which emerge discreet medallion-like portraits, small, clear-cut areas – the nape of women’s neck, half a face, a bra strap across a back – that pin down a contemporary reality of the town.
As for Camille Picquot, her work is a celebration of the incongruous, the fugitive, the unforeseen: a man seems wrapped in an amorous embrace by his car; individuals are caught in enigmatic confrontation with an accident – such as a falling pile of packing blocks...
It was impossible for the Jury to choose one over the other and both photographers were declared winners of the Planche(s) Contact Fondation Louis Roederer Student Competition in 2013.
