Argentina - Born in 1958
The colours are clearly reminiscent of Martin Parr, the humour of Peter Dench, and the images of Andy Warhol. Marcos López, a leading name in Argentinian photography, took up this profession after the 1978 World Cup, where he had met a host of photographers covering the event. Renowned for…
France - Born in 1978
The Morbihan Sanctuaries
Nature needs space and time to blossom, regenerate and establish itself in the long term. Nature reserves are refuges of biodiversity that were set up by the public authorities in France to protect and observe the fauna and flora that have been damaged by urbanisation, land…

France - Born in 1993
Les noirceurs du fleuve rouge
Coline Jourdan is a visual artist and photographer. Fully committed to environmental protection, she questions the codes of representation in photography, taking a particular interest in toxicity, its presence in our environment and its often imperceptible impacts. Les…
Brazil - Born in 1944
“The first time I saw the Serra Pelada mine, I was speechless. There was this huge pit before me, almost two hundred metres in diameter and just as deep, swarming with tens of thousands of barely clothed men, half of them carrying heavy bags of earth on rickety wooden ladders, the other half…
Pablo Corral Vega
Ecuador - Born in 1966
The Hymn of the Andes
Now accustomed to seeing his pictures published in prestigious American magazine National Geographic, Pablo Corral Vega, a master of colour photography, has never lost sight of the mission he set himself upon entering the profession: “I’ve always wanted to bear witness to the world…
Chile - Born in 1968
Seen from the sky, these are small turquoise or emerald lakes glistening in the north of Chile. But upon closer inspection, it transpires that their glow is actually caused by toxic copper waste, a residue from mines that flows into the water. Further away, in the Tarapacá region, the…
David Bart - Winner of the Fisheye
France - Born in 1974
Because of the presence of such a large quantity of water artificially retained in one place, the Three Gorges Dam is the first human construction to slow the Earth’s rotational speed, reducing it by 0.06 microseconds per year. This dam is the third biggest tourist attraction in China and a…
Brazil - Born in 1980
The Green Gold Rush
Last summer’s images of the Amazon ravaged by huge fires made headlines around the world and moved us all for many weeks. It was impossible for photojournalist Carolina Arantes, who was born in Brazil but resides in France, to remain indifferent to the drama that was unfolding in her…
Brazil - Born in 1965
This Brazilian photographer creates some dizzying images. Fortunately, however, most of them are not real! Take, for example, the startling picture of an imaginary runway where 250 planes form an impossible maze of fuselages that appears to hint at a nightmarish future. It took 800 hours…
Emmanuel Honorato Vázquez
Ecuador / 1893-1924
The forgotten photographer of the 1920s.
He is one of Ecuador’s greatest photographers. Yet until recently, there had been no attempt to resurrect his images, mainly because conservative society would have preferred his work to drop into oblivion. Emmanuel Honorato Vázquez came from a wealthy family but…
Sébastien Leban - Winner of the Fisheye
France - Born in 1987
Tangier, the forgotten Island
Sébastien Leban is a freelance photojournalist who is focused on the consequences of climate change. Located in a swampy zone a hundred miles from Washington DC, Tangier Island is a metaphor for the world’s current environmental denial. Despite the island gradually sinking…
Brazil - Born in 1988
Young Brazilian photographer Luisa Dörr won a World Press Photo award in 2019 and has gained recognition for her masterful portraiture and use of colour in recent years. This exhibition is mainly made up of two different series. The first explores the world of the Flying Cholitas, the Bolivian…
Chile - Born in 1975
Taming the untameable at the edge of Patagonia is an adventure worthy of a novel. Photographer Tomás Munita did just that when he embarked with a troop of gauchos, or Chilean cowboys, on the trail of the bagualeros, capturing feral cattle in the steppes and mountains of Sutherland…
Mexico - Born in 1974
Based in Mexico, Pedro Pardo was awarded a World Press Photo prize in 2019 for his shot of a group of Latin American migrants climbing the wall between Mexico and the United States. He continues to document a wounded country that sinks deeper and deeper into violence, every day. His…

The revolt of the Indigenous Amazon populations
In Jair Bolsonaro’s Brazil, the indigenous populations are struggling to make their voices heard to defend their land in the Amazon. This is a mammoth task in a country where native tribes only account for 0.5% of the population (approximately 900,000…
France - Born in 1977
Journey to the centre of the sea
We currently know more about Mars than we do about the ocean depths of our own planet. 72% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water and 95% of our world’s living space lies beneath the waves. The ocean and its great depths really are the final frontier for us to…
Nadia Shira Cohen
United States - Born in 1977
In Mayan culture, bee-keepers believe that bees are a gift from the god Ah Muzen Cab and provide a link with the spirit world. For centuries, these insects made the Yucatán Peninsula the world’s leading honey-producing region. In 2011, however, the Mexican government began…
