The Young Talents Springboard
To accompany
the photographers of tomorrow

__________ ___
A constant at all of Deauville's cultural festivals, support for young talents takes concrete form with Contact Board (s) through a competition open from the start to students from European schools, then to young photographers whatever their background. Welcomed in residence in Deauville, they produced a photographic work on the city, presented to the public during the Festival and submitted to the vote of photography professionals and the public.

In 2019, five young springboards are in competition
to win the Contact Boards prize:
Abdoulaye Barry
Between men and the sea
Originally from N'Djamena in Chad, where he lives, Abdoulaye Barry trained by participating in photo workshops in Africa and Europe. Today, he collaborates with NGOs, international newspapers and magazines in parallel with a more personal work with which he wins the Jury Prize at the African Biennial Les Rencontres de Bamako in Mali. In Deauville, he focused his attention on the links that men maintain with the sea, he who comes from a country in Central Africa and had never seen the sea.

Gregory Dargent
The breakaway
Grégory Dargent is a musician and photographer, born in 1977 in Argenteuil. He discovers his passion for photography by chance late, anchored in the temporality of film, attached to the abstraction of black and white and advocating the greatest subjectivity, his stories often have autobiographical and poetic overtones. In Deauville, he remembers the breakaway that he experienced a few years ago with a young woman, fleeing from a past life and a too narrow city. Intimate work.

Chau-Cuong Le
Staring at the sea, standing on the beach
Chau-Cuong Lê, divides his time between advertising orders, reports for the press and his personal projects. In Deauville, he drew the portrait of the city through its inhabitants. By meeting adolescents, he wanted to transcribe the atmosphere of the city out of season: the feeling of emptiness and waiting.

Jean-Charles Remicourt-Marie
I wanted to lock up the mist
Jean-Charles Remicourt-Marie, of Norman origin, explores in his work the ambiguities contained in military devices, what they contain of formal, even decorative seduction, and their uses. He has produced a series retracing on the surface of Deauville all the historical and intimate strata that compose it: the world of games, luxury, the military history of Normandy and the culture of tourism.
