Each of the three works by École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles (ENSP) graduates meriting Special Attention at the Rencontres d’Arles this year, according to the jury, evokes “the communal” as it’s shared in time, space or through an activity. Anyssia Bidout’s work revolves around the motor vehicle: its construction, repair and aesthetics. The series Filmogenic seeks to empty the car of its social, political and cultural meanings. Emma Riviera’s series Fos Ideas, analyzes the complexities of the city Fos-sur-Mer. She goes out to meet the people of Fos in their everyday lives, punctuated by public festivals, leisure time at the beach, and at roundabouts, the symbol of the Gilets Jaunes movement. Cédrine Scheidig’s A Life In-Between is a photographic project exploring the “third island”, or the Caribbean populations that live on the outskirts of Paris.
Exhibition coproduced by the ENSP and the Rencontres d'Arles.
