1981 - Pascal Dolemieux

“Try to take photographs of real life without changing it,” he has said, but has then set about changing it with made-up images, compositions… In 1981, he received the national photography foundation prize followed a few years later by the Niepce prize, and many subsequent distinctions. He says of himself: “I look at the world through the window of an obscure room… sometimes the world is not enough for me… you need something of everything to make a world, or to invent others.”
