Edition 2005


This exhibition brings together the work of 29 Photographers, some of whom are also Film or Video Makers. All of them, at one time or another over the last twenty years, were students at the National School of Photography in Arles. The aim, as we celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the first graduation class, is to offer a significant sample of what the School has turned out during those years. Not an appraisal, not an exhaustive survey, but a quick look back. The selection was made by the School's teaching team, its first Director, its Current Director and the Exhibition Curator Laetitia Talbot – but there are plenty of other talented working photographers who could have been included as well. Among the twenty-nine participants, eighteen have a reputation attested to by exhibitions in France and/or abroad, critical writings on their work and recognition in artistic circles. They are Stanislas Amand, Erik Bullot, Daniel Challe, Monique Deregibus, Anne Favret and Patrick Manez, Jean-Baptiste Ganne, Arno Gisinger, Valérie Jouve, Andréa Keen, Mireille Loup, Olivier Ménanteau, Mathieu Pernot, Antonin Potoski, David Rosenfeld, Lukas Roth and Bruno Serralongue. The other eleven are admittedly less well known, but the exhibition organisers wanted to take advantage of this chance to give them fresh access to the public. Their names: Alexa Brunet, François Burgun, Nikolas Chesnais, Amaury Da Cunha, Maitetxu

With the backing of Dupon. In conjunction with the Jeu de Paume and supported by the French National Foundation for the Graphic and Visual Arts.
