GUILLAUME PIENS

Organiser and artistic director of cultural events as well as art collector, Guillaume Piens has worked for the FIAC and Paris Photo, among others.

He is notably the author of the Eastern trilogy for Paris Photo with the invitation of Japan in 2008, of the Arab World and Iran in 2009 and of Central Europe in 2010.

In 2011, he created his own cultual event production company: he is currently the artistic consultant of the first Photo Saint Germain des Prés festival in 2011 and the General Commissioner of Art Paris Art Fair, the Spring meeting for modern and contemporary art at the Grand Palais.

He was also one of the nominators for the Prix Pictet.

"Photographing using large format is privileging composition through the inversion of the image which the technique of the view camera performs. It also means singing the praises of slowness. The prolonged exposure time is like a long decantation of the real, favouring a unique, contemplative writing unlike images characterised by the hollow and decorative plasticity that menaces contemporary photography.”
