About the Artist:
Born in 1959, Philippe Chancel lives and works in Paris. For more than twenty years, he pursues a photographic experience at the border between art, documentary and journalism.
In parallel, he realizes portraits of visual artists in the movement of "free figuration" and "video art". He now collaborates with art magazines, cultural institutions and publishing houses, and regularly exhibits his work both in France and abroad: Artcurial (Paris), Photographer's Gallery (London), Power Station (Brussels), "Rencontres d'Arles 2006", C / O (Berlin).
His project on the Emirates was presented during the 53rd edition of the Venice Biennale and as part of the exhibition "Dreamlands" of the Center Pompidou in May 2010.
