1. La Fille Renne

2. Cecilia Sordi Campos
Tem Bigato Nessa Goiaba, a metaphorical series imagined in the wake of a break-up, reads like a rebirth. In the burning landscapes of her native Brazil, photographer Cecilia Sordi Campos imagines complex narratives, crossing her own story with that of an entire country’s.

3. Martin Colombet

4. Gaël Bonnefon
With Même Soleil, Gaël Bonnefon and Frédéric D. Oberland present a dialogue between pictures and music in the form of a requiem for time. Designed by IIKKI publishing house, the book and the record offer a six-handed work in withdrawal from the world.

5. Jeanne Pieprzownik
Jeanne Pieprzownik mixes fine art with photography while she paints her images with colourful tones to enhance the world’s splendour. Inspired by naïve art and surrealism, she uses nuances to compose a story rich in emotion, where each contrast becomes a symbol, a fragment, a sensation.
