November 9 and 10 mark the 2019 Albert-Kahn Photography Portfolio Review in Boulogne-Billancourt, open to all photographers who wish to submit their work for the Friends of the Albert-Kahn Museum Grants. Submissions are now open until October 14 at [email protected].
The Association of the Friends of the Albert-Kahn Museum
The Association of the Friends of the Albert-Kahn Museum strives to contribute to the spread of the philosophy and the work of Albert Kahn. A banker, patron and humanist, Albert Kahn built a rich and complex body of work in the service of peace and creating dialogue between cultures.
The objective of this grant is to financially support, honour, encourage and promote photographic artists who use their talent in order to contribute to knowledge of the world and discovering regions and populations. Through an annual event the association enables discussions between experts in the world of photography and photographers dedicated to the exploration of regions and populations.
Photographers will present their work one-on-one with an art expert of their choice for a session of 20 minutes in a relaxed but professional atmosphere. Photographers will be able to meet their preferred expert depending on the available places and time slots.
The aim of this project is to provide an opportunity to each artist to have a candid conversation on photography with experts in the field.
The list of experts is continually evolving, make sure you come back to our site regularly.
At the end of the review a jury comprised of experts from the world of photography and chaired by Françoise Denoyelle, will select 10 finalists, and among those, several winners who will receive a grant of €5000, plus €1000 of conferences or studio events with the public of the Albert-Kahn Museum.
