This must be where pies go when they die

"Late at night, players distribute their chips with disillusioned gestures on the tables of the casino. A few hours later, just before sunrise, a person scouring the beach in search of treasures lost by bathers. In the afternoon, a boy with beautiful blond hair pays a yearling at auction to have him run the next day on the racetrack. Deauville is a city of happiness like its lush trees and apple sculptures which decorate its hotels. "

Born in Lausanne, Younès Klouche studied photography at ECAL, where he graduated with honors in 2015. Through his work, he is looking for solutions to redefine the documentary genre through a conceptual and reflexive approach. His projects are mainly in the form of a book, but also of installation and appear in exhibitions at the Musée de l'Élysée, in Bienne Photoforum, at the Art Bärtschi gallery or at the Tate Modern. On the occasion of the 2016 Rencontres d'Arles, he published his first photo book at Éditions du LIC.
