Winners announced at Les Rencontres de la Photographie 2015

France – 
Winner: PAULINE FARGUE Artist proposed by Fannie Escoulen

Pauline Fargue is a performer, video artist, and sculptor whose diverse forms of expression are united by photography. For twelve years she has been arranging her photos in notebooks (diaries, philosophical journals, archives) examining all aspects of her life: familial, romantic, social. These are storehouse-notebooks where she stocks words, encounters, stories, the photographs that she folds, glues, cuts, reoccurring tirelessly over the pages. Pauline Fargue now reveals this personal archive to the public for the very first time, creating an original installation for the Rencontres d’Arles.Fannie Escoulen

Monograph Vitas Luckus. Works. Biography Margarita Matulyte et Tatjana Luckiene-Aldag Kaunas Photography gallery & Lithuanian Art Museum, dec. 2014

K. Candrowicz announcing the winner from the historical books category said, “History is always written by the winners. The same applies to the history of photography. Without such a powerful tool as information sharing and communication through museums, galleries, the media and various publications, we would never have heard of such artists as Avedon, Newton, Cartier-Bresson, Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin. But the artists who lived behind an iron curtain, never had an access to these powerful tools. Thus, this book brings Vitas Luckus back to the history of world photography into which, despite his exceptional talent he was not able to get in because of the political system of the time.”

Piero Martinello – Italy for “Radicalia”

Radical is something “deep acting; that invests a problem from the essential principles “according to the Great Dictionary of Italian Salvatore Battaglia. Based on this definition, the photographer Piero Martinello has traveled Italy looking for men and women who, each in his own way and for different reasons, have embraced radical choices and lifestyles. Folli, ravers, criminals, devotees, cloistered nuns: the subjects chosen by Martinello come to life in a series of portraits in which the photographic language is expressed sometimes in pure form, sometimes grafted on elements of the iconography vernacular (passport, holy cards, pictures signs), in a concept album where the face becomes the key to investigate the human need to undertake the extremes of life and external to the conventional ways.
