Alexandre Chamelat wins the Public Prize Board (s) Contact

Five young photographers took part in a creative residency in Deauville between May and June. Selected from around a hundred candidates: Alexandre Chamelat, Mireia Ferron, Samuel Lebon, Guillaume Noury, and Hugo Vouhé matched their photographic universe with one of the many facets of Deauville's identity. On October 27, Guillaume Noury ​​received the Contact Planche (s) Prize for “While the sea rises” and Hugo Vouhé a special mention from the jury for his work “Gris Glam” produced at the Villa Strassburger.
Alexandre Chamelat today won the Audience Prize with more than half of the ballots in his favor out of nearly 2 counted ballots!

Alexandre Chamelat, 28, won over the Planche (s) Contact Jury with his strong and assumed visual identity during the selections last February. Shapes, textures, gradients 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. Passers-by become actors in this story, through several everyday scenes with dazzling geometrical compositions. If the photographic processing takes such an important place in his approach, it is because it is linked to his personal feelings.
