These days rich in discoveries and friendly exchanges will be the opportunity for a double exploration, that of the Arlesian and surrounding territories but also those more intimate, personal, interior. An exciting quest whose challenge will be to match its two levels of exploration.

Grégoire Korganow began his career as a photojournalist in 1991 and worked for the press for twenty years (The New York Times, Geo, Liberation, Télérama, Marie Claire). He produces several personal series, often supported by cultural structures, foundations, public institutions. Works that are regularly exhibited, in particular in recent years at the Rencontres d'Arles, at Visa pour l'image, at the European House of Photography (MEP), at the Milan Triennale. A graduate of Applied Arts at the Estienne school in Paris before becoming a professional, he also teaches photography, notably at the Faculty of Paris 1 in 2012.

Several of his series have resulted in the publication of books, in particular: Père et Fils (2016, Neus); Prisons 67065 (2015, Neus, Edition Les Belles lettres); I was dead (2010, Edition Le Clou dans le fer); Patagonia, stories from around the world (2004, Solar Edition); To be 20 years old in Santiago de Chile (2003, Éditions Alternatives). Since 2016 Grégoire Korganow has been pursuing the Father and Son series around the world during residencies, notably in Brazil and China.
