Participant of the Tremplin Jeunes Talents 2018

Born in Paris in 1990, Alexandre Chamelat began his studies with a scientific curriculum and obtained a degree in computer science. He graduated from the Toulouse School of Photography and Game Design (ETPA), and won the ETPA Grand Prize in 2015, with a special mention from the jury. His works are essentially the result of a journey or an encounter, often in close relation with Man, the land and the territory. Adept at woofing, he left in the fall of 2015 to crisscross Morocco and share the daily life of farmers between Tagounite and Marrakech. This initiatory journey is the subject of his series The Zaïd Garden, a journey to the gates of the Sahara and into the intimacy of the families he lived with. He is passionate about the technical precision of post-photo processing.

Winner of the Audience Award at the 2018 Planche(s) Contact Festival.
