Eric Aupol / Photography as a revelator

For several years I have been developing a photographic work that explores space and architecture as much as the medium itself. I try to record the real in a form of objectivity, reporting, by the frontality of my framings, a statement of the photographed places, as markings of history, politics and society, and as mental configurations.

My work,  which I will present at this conference, is part of the history of documentary photography, but also in a space that shows that the tool is never transparent, and that its own qualities, light and framing, participate in the organization of this recorded reality.

Eric Aupol:

Born in 1969 live in Paris, Eric Aupol is known for his photographs on the places and spaces as markers of history and as mental configurations. The expanses of landscape, the tightening of private or collective housing, details of objects, bodies and faces are approached in the quest for a visual style where the sensible and the intelligible would stop to oppose.

Margin, as historical, political and aesthetic, through different levels of revelation throughout his photographic corpus questioning the spaces visited as well as the photographic medium, playing what clogs and unfolds in relation to the real, palimpsest of a foliation of memories and history.

Winner of the Villa Médicis Prize in 2009, represented by Polaris Gallery in Paris, he taught photography at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Bourges, and is involved in various art schools, in the form of workshops and conferences (ENSP Arles, ENSCI-Les Ateliers Paris, Ramallah International Academy of Art, University of Shanghai, …)

His work is included in many public and private collections in France and abroad (French National Library, European House of Photography, Paris, Museum ofHeidelberg, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, …)
