Patrick Tourneboeuf

.

Patrick Tourneboeuf was born in 1966 in Paris, where he lives and works. He is a member of the collective of photographers Tendance Floue. His series Traces is part of a photographic mission about social landscape in South Africa, produced by Les Rencontres d’Arles and the market photo workshop of Johannesburg. Patrick Tourneboeuf shows through his images the traces of the mining activity of the town of Kimberley and several references to its colonial past.

This year, his series Stèles (memorial stones) has been exhibited at the Rencontres d’Arles (Night of the year), his series Monolith has been presented to La Gacilly Festival in Bretagne, and his series Stations has been exhibited at Festival PhotoMed in Sanary-sur-Mer. His work has been exhibited in Berlin in 2009, in Johannesburg in South Africa in 2012, in China and Luxembourg in 2014, among others.

Ambroise Tézenas (b. 1972) graduated from the School of Applied Arts in Vevey (Switzerland) in 1994. First based in London then in Paris, he collaborates with French and international press. Aiming to photograph time passing by, Tézenas presents some very dreamlike images of Paris. Even if they are contemporary, they seem to come from the past. The human figure disappear, the shadows of passers-by reveal their ephemeral influence on a long-lasting landscape. These images were made for the photographic mission France(s), territoire liquide (France(s), liquid territory).

Since 2007 Ambroise Tézenas has collaborated with the New York Times Magazine, Le Monde, the International Herald Tribune, among others. In 2009 he won the Nikon Story Teller Award at the PDN Photo Annual (USA) for his photographs of Cuba commissioned by the New York Times Magazine.

Untitled 52

.

Edgar Martins was born in Évora, Portugal, but grew up in Macau. In 1996 he moved to the UK, where he lives and works. Shot largely on the same set of beaches in Portugal over a period of two years, the imagery of The Accidental Theorist is a series of instants that have become independent of reason or purpose. This landscape is familiar, ubiquitous, and yet imaginary, unreal. It is full of stillness and silence yet the pervasive tranquillity is not reassuring but discordant, inconsistent, intangible. The series When light casts no shadow, that was produced in the Azores, where the airports used to both be a compulsory stop for early Transatlantic flights and important military bases in both world wars, will also be presented at the booth.

His works have toured several high profile museums and public galleries such as PS1 MoMA (New York), Centro Cultural de Belém (Lisbon), Centro Cultural Hélio Oiticica (Rio de Janeiro), The Gallery of Photography (Dublin, Ireland), Ffotogallery (Penarth, UK), among many others. In 2010 the Centre Culturel Calouste Gulbenkian (Paris) hosted Edgar Martins’s first retrospective exhibition.

Franck Gérard was born in Poitiers (France) in 1972 and graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Nantes.

With Twenty-six days, his American diary, Franck Gérard invites writing to accompany his pictures. He invites us to share his wanderings, from San Francisco to New York through Los Angeles and the desert. The picture is amplified, enhanced by the story. Franck Gérard’s chronicles immerse us into the world as he sees and perceives it, and as it comes to life in his pictures.

In 2013, the artist was commissioned to create the series “Manifester En l’état, une enquête poétique“ in Marseille, by the Ministry of Culture – National center of visual arts – CNAP. This project is now exhibited at Frac PACA in Marseille. His work has been exhibited at Lieu Unique in Nantes, Domaine de Kerguéhennec, Morbihan, at Fondation d’entreprise Ricard in Paris, Centre Georges Pompidou-Metz.

Jean-Claude Pondevie, renowned French architect, was born in 1942 and has pursued his photographic work for ten years now.

His photographs reflect a research of minimalism and composition. His very cinematographic choices in framing and composing the scene create an omnipresent voiceover and reinforce the feeling of unreality. His images, black monochromes at first glance, show after a studious observation some deserted house, urban wastelands, and deserts.

Rune Guneriussen was born in 1977 in Kongsberg in Norway. He lives and works in Vestfossen, Norway. His work focuses on two practices: installation and photography using a large-format view camera. Most of these interventions, performed on isolated natural sites, are visible only through his photographs: the only vestiges or evidences of what existed.

His photographs has been exhibited at the House of Photography in Oslo, The National Annual Autumn Exhibition, Bremen in Germany, National Gallery of Bulgaria, Tallinn, among others. More recently, he participated in St Moritz Art Masters in August 2013, where he made an installation of lamps, and he made the stagedesign for Idomeneo, opera by Mozart, at Klagenfurt Stadttheater, Austria, in March 2013.
