French photographer Gilles Coulon was winner of the 8th Grand Prix ‘ A Photographer for Eurazeo’. He won the contest “Re-enchanting company“.
He receives a grant of 10,000 euros and will be exhibited at the European House of Photography in Paris from January 17 to February 25. His works will also integrate the Parisian premises of the investment company.
For this project, Gilles Coulon wanted to look at ‘the company as a place, an entity, both theater and actor of this process. Like a silent person who would wait for his time to take his place, to say what has been forgotten. And if re-enchanting the company was simply giving it meaning, the human? Wake up sleeping giants, revive old pinardier castles. Bring in light and see these buildings come alive and transform themselves into places of life and work.’
Born in 1966, Gilles Coulon is a member of the Tendance Floue collective. He received the World Press Photo in the daily life category in 1997.
