ABOUT THE ARTIST
Since the age of 12, Bruno Fert’s ambition has been to travel the globe and photograph its inhabitants. Through his work, he sheds light on political and social issues from a singular perspective, pairing complex issues with photographs and testimonies that are relatable, and all too human.
A number of Bruno’s exhibitions have focused on the shifting nature of home and belonging, offering a closer look at villages depopulated in the first Arab–Israeli war in 1948 (The Absentees); the “anachronistic and unreal” tented settlements for the homeless in Paris (Tents in the City); and now the interior spaces of makeshift shelters in France, Greece and particularly ‘the Jungle’ in Calais (Refuges).
His images are regularly published in newspapers and magazines like Le Monde or Le Nouvel Observateur. His work has been recognised by la Bourse du Talent, World Press Photo, the Prix Roger Pic and the Prix de la Banque Neuflize.
