Pierre

untitled-6

J’ai choisi cette photo de Pierre car, pour moi, elle évoque la bonne humeur dans laquelle j’ai vécu ce stage de 5 jours aux Rencontres d’Arles. Pierre de Vallombreuse était notre maître de stage. Pendant cette semaine, Pierre a partagé son savoir et sa sensibilité artistique avec beaucoup de générosité.

Cela fait 25 ans qu’il voyage autour du monde et photographie les peuples autochtones. Il raconte ses histoires avec passion et on pourrait l’ écouter et regarder ses images pendant des heures.

Il a publié plusieurs livres dont Hommes Racines.

I have chosen this portrait of Pierre as it reminds me of the wonderful atmosphere there was during the 5-day workshop I did during the Festival in Arles. Pierre de Vallombreuse was our mentor. During the week, Pierre shared his knowledge and his artistic sensibility with great generosity.

He has been travelling the world for 25 years and photographs ethnic minorities. He tells his stories with passion and you could listen to him and look at his photographs for hours.

He has published several books including Hommes Racines.
