Carmignac Photojournalism Award 10 Years of Reportage

The exceptional display of more than 100 photographs showcases ten years of photo reports, spotlighting human rights violations and environmental issues, in different regions of the world. This retrospective is also a tribute to the courage and independence of the photojournalists who, through their own unique perspectives, have witnessed and shared the irreversible upheavals that the planet is going through. On the ground floor of the foundation’s spaces, the first eight projects are presented as a thematic journey through the regions explored by the Award. From the normalization of ‘‘conflict zones’’ in both Lashkars (Pashtunistan) by Massimo Berruti and Gaza: The Book of Destruction by Kai Wiedenhöfer, to accounts of modern slavery in The Trap: Trafficking of Women in Nepal by Lizzie Sadin, and Libya: a Human Marketplace by Narciso Contreras; with reports from forgotten regions of the French colonial empire in Guyana: Colony by Christophe Gin, and from Newsha Tavakolian’s Iran (Blank Pages of an Iranian Photo Album); and with projects uncovering fundamental attacks on freedom of expression, including Spasibo by Davide Monteleone (Chechnya) and Zimbabwe: Your wounds will be named silence by Robin Hammond, the exhibition invites visitors to consider the humanitarian crises and environmental disruptions that affect many countries today. In the upstairs exhibition spaces, two reports dedicated to climate change and its human consequences will be on display: the ‘‘new Far West’’, Arctic: New Frontier by Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen (2018), and Amazônia by Tommaso Protti (2019). Carmignac Photojournalism Award In 2009, while the media and photojournalism faced an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac created the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to support photographers in the field. Led by Emeric Glayse, the Award annually funds the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations and geostrategic issues in the world. Selected by an international jury, the laureates receive a €50,000 grant to carry out a 6-month field report with the support of Fondation Carmignac, which produces, upon their return, a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monograph. Fondation Carmignac Created in 2000 by Édouard Carmignac, Fondation Carmignac is a corporate foundation founded on two main strands: its contemporary art collection that comprises more than 300 works and the Carmignac Photojournalism Award, an annual award that has supported the production of an investigative report since 2009. Led by Charles Carmignac, the foundation is dedicated to supporting contemporary creation and sharing its collection with the public. In June 2018, Fondation Carmignac opened an exhibition space, Villa Carmignac, and a sculpture garden inspired by the surrounding listed national park on the Mediterranean island of Porquerolles, France. Visitors are invited to discover temporary exhibitions, in situ commissions, and a programme of cultural activities and performances.
