Participant of the 2018 Young Talents Springboard

Born in Paris in 1990, Alexandre chamelat begins his studies with a scientific course and obtains a bachelor's degree in computer science. A graduate of the Toulouse School of Photography and Game Design (ETPA), he won the ETPA 2015 grand prize, and received a special mention from the jury. His work is essentially the fruit of a journey or an encounter, often in close relation with Man, the earth and the territory. Follower of woofing, he leaves in the fall of 2015 to cross Morocco and divide the daily life of farmers between Tagounite and Marrakech. This initiatory journey is the object of his series The Zaïd Garden, a trip to the gates of the Sahara and in the privacy of the families with whom he lived. He is passionate about the technical precision of post-photo processing.

Public Prize winner at the 2018 Contact Board Festival (s).
