epea in Paris

Paris is the third stop of the European Photo Exhibition Award 02! The exhibition opened mid-October 2014 and is part of the programme of Paris Photo2014. After Oslo and Lucca, the second edition of epea will be shown in Paris until 20 December. The entrance is free. Horizons, the title of the Parisian exhibition, showcases the work of twelve artists exploring themes related to this emerging social landscape and reveal significant changes in the areas of cultural identity, lifestyle, communication, territory, and politics. Through urban landscapes, photojournalism, reportage, portraiture, and staging, these photographers have each interpreted the subject in their own way while remaining profoundly marked by their cultures.
Next stop is Hamburg!

The 2nd European Photo Exhibition Award
New touring exhibition in 2014 and 2015 focusing on the topic “The New Social”
The European Photo Exhibition Award – epea for short – aims to create a free space where socially relevant topics concerning Europe are developed and discussed by talented photographers who live and work in Europe and who still are at an early stage of establishing themselves as professional photographers. The twelve appointed photographers will translate their observations, analyses and statements on a set and socially relevant subject into a photo essay. The results will be presented in a joint touring exhibition within Europe.
