Guests at the Planche (s) Contact festival in 2011

Born respectively in 1981 and 1987 in the Paris region, Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre, began photography each of their sides in 2001. Fascinated by architecture, and by ruins, they published in 2010, the book Detroit, vestiges of the American dream, which was a critical and commercial success. Their vision of the city goes beyond aesthetics, it is both sociological and urban. With exhibitions in Sweden and Paris, they are beginning to make themselves known in the photographic world, but also in that of town planning and architecture.

Young talents, they were invited to Deauville in 2011 to photograph all the places dedicated to the horse: racetracks, stables, weighing rooms, veterinary clinics. It was then one of their first order, a bet on the future and on the young generation of emerging photographic artists for the Festival Planche (s) Contact.
