“The three authors laureates of the Prize: Pierre-Elie de Pibrac, Emmanuel Tussore, Camille Shabestari, work on a same issue with asserted identities. The exhibition focuses on the photographic research of each one, that explores documentary through specific and complementary visual processes.
As a result, there is no coincidence! The 2018 selection for the Prix gathers three photographers in step with their time. They question the world, and they document it with a conceptual and artistic commitment. Their series are crossed by a same concern filled with curiosity. » Catherine Dérioz and Jacques Damez
