Elise Voyau won the 2017 edition of the Louis Roederer Research Fellowship for her research project entitled ‘Amateur Review and Book of Collection: Japanese Photography of the 1960s and 1970s in the collections of the National Library of France’. Her research project will be financed with 10 000 euros grand given by the Maison Louis Roederer.
Elise Voyau will be able to “study the Japanese photography of the 1960s and 1970s, especially four major photographers of this period whose BNF has collections and prints,” says the Maison Louis Roederer. Her work will bring better knowledge of Japanese photography, while highlighting the reciprocal influence between Japanese photography and Western photography.
