Bertrand Meunier

Since the end of the 1990s, Bertrand Meunier (born in 1963) has been developing photographic series examining, in a frontal yet sensitive way, the territories in which he immerses himself over the long term. Noted for his photographs on the social changes of the contemporary Chinese world, he then became interested in Asian megalopolises. At the same time, he carried out a long work on Pakistan and Afghanistan in collaboration with Newsweek magazine. Closer to home, he chronicles daily life in French prisons (Le silence est un luxe) and the life of his own family (L’homme éloigné and Refuge).

Member of the Tendance Floue collective since 2007, his documentary approach is coupled with narrative accents, served by the poetry of his exclusive use of black and white. Assuming its share of subjectivity, his work is built in a permanent back and forth between here and elsewhere.

Meunier’s photographs are present in many public and private collections including the National Library of France, the CNAP, the Museum of Fine Arts in Wuhan and the Neuflize OBC collection. The Erased series has received several awards including the Prix Nicéphore Niépce in 2007 and the Prix Leica Oskar-Barnack in 2001.
