The 3rd edition of the Luxembourg Street Photography Festival, held from 2 to 5 May 2019 in the Rotondes, welcomes Pierre Gély-Fort for a lecture & signature around his latest book “Extrême Far East” on Saturday May 4th from 1.30pm to 2.30pm.
A photographer and creator of books, with a penchant for visual worlds, rich in color, Pierre Gély-Fort extends his love of travel through the books he designs and lays out himself.
Without texts or legends, the geographical locations become the pretext for an artistic expression, outside of a traditional narrative documentary or photo-journalistic document. The author reveals his travels and encounters across a range of countries by means of an emotional gaze and an inherent, underlying dialogue.
Throughout these different peregrinations, the viewer / reader can infer the author’s singular imagination, empathy and tenderness towards the photographed subjects, and the authenticity of the staging. The assemblage, resonances and scenography constructed from these photographic moments foster a dialogue between the images, and create proximity with the subject.
