4th July – 1st November 2020

The Fondation Carmignac is pleased to present Carmignac Photojournalism Award: 10 Years of Reportage, on view from July 4 to November 1, 2020 at the Villa Carmignac on the Island of Porquerolles.

The exceptional display of more than 170 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.

 

Subjects

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.

  • Modern slavery. The Trap: Slavery and Trafficking in Women in Nepal by Lizzie Sadin and Libya: Human Trafficking Hub by Narciso Contreras.
