Alexandre Chamelat wins the Planche(s) Contact Public Prize

Five young photographers were hosted in a creative residency in Deauville between May and June. Alexandre Chamelat, Mireia Ferron, Samuel Lebon, Guillaume Noury, and Hugo Vouhé were selected from among a hundred or so applicants to match their photographic universe with one of the many facets of Deauville's identity. On October 27, Guillaume Noury received the Prix Planche(s) Contact for "Pendant que la mer monte" and Hugo Vouhé received a special mention from the jury for his work "Gris Glam" produced at the Villa Strassburger.
Alexandre Chamelat won the Public Prize today with more than half of the ballots cast in his favor out of nearly 2,100 ballots counted!

Auwa Kingdom, a Wes Anderson-style Deauville

Alexandre Chamelat, 28 years old, seduced the Planche(s) Contact Jury with his strong and assumed visual identity during the selections last February. Shapes, textures, gradations and contrasts are at the center of his compositions. In Deauville, it is in a white light with a universe inspired by Wes Anderson that Alexandre Chamelat seduced the public of the Festival Planche(s) Contact. With his photographs, he gives us back Deauville and its architecture. The passers-by become actors of this story, through several scenes of everyday life with dazzling compositions of geometry. If the photographic treatment takes such an important place in his approach, it is because it is linked to his personal feelings.
