|About the Artist:
Vincent Catala is a self-taught photographer that lives and works in Paris. In 2005, after completing a Masters in Intellectual Property at McGill University (Canada), Vincent began pursuing a career in photography. His approach is to examine the relationship between the individuals and the space around them, transforming what may be more documentary in visual style to concepts that go beyond formal representation. The presence of man, whether visible or suggested, remains central to his narrative. Vincent has received recognition for his work, particularly in the last two years, working with curator Milton Guran at Recontres d'Arles, Festival des Transphotographiques in Lille, and Centro de Artes Helio Oiticica in Rio de Janeiro. He has also exhibited at the Dupon Gallery in Paris with curator Pascale Giffard and this year, his work can be seen at the Circulation(s) festival in Paris. In 2009, he was nominated for the Parole Photographique Prize and in 2011, received Finalist for the Emergentes prize in Portugal.
