The jury of the Prix Niépce Gens d’Images met on May 24th to select its 59th winner. Following Valérie Jouve in 2013, this year the 8,000€ prize was awarded to Mathieu Pernot. His candidacy was sponsored by artistic director and curator Christian Caujolle. It’s been a good year for Pernot, 44, who won the Prix Nadar six months ago with L’Asile des photographies, published by Point du Jour, and whose exhibition La Traversée just ended at the Jeu de Paume in Paris.
