The Fonds Régnier pour la Création is committed to emerging photography and creates, in collaboration with Agence VU’, MP#01. This new program of Photographic Mentoring aims to identify and accompany promising young authors in the development of their artistic practice and professional visibility.

Under the supervision of the VU’ team each selected author will benefit from a personalized and
transdisciplinary program combining project support by photographer-mentors, expert consultations, the
participation in VU’ Education program trainings, professional meetings, collective workshops.

At the end of the 9 months of mentoring the organizers will propose
an event that will present the projects produced by the five selected young photographers to reveal their talent to the general public and to professionals.

Marin Driguez began his photography practice at only 15 years old, during the Nantes social movements of 2014. He continued to cover demonstrations and social struggles in Nantes and then in Paris, before moving to Brussels in 2018 to join the Ecole Supérieure des Arts de l’image, the 75 to start his training in documentary photography. He then turns his attention to the world of hospitals, documenting the caretakers and patients, the provision of medical and social care, the spirit of cohesion and the lack of resources.

Awarded by the Prix Régnier for Creation 2019, France Dubois has been practicing photography intuitively as a self-taught photographer for 11 years. With her poetic eye and assertive aesthetic, she explores the territories of the intimate at the border of the visible and the invisible.

Self-taught, Yanis Kafiz first developed his sensitivity for visual arts in Algerian associative circles in parallel with his university studies. Upon his arrival in France in 2015, nourished by questions about this crossing and this new departure, he developed and affirmed a photography envisioned as a process of self-expression.

Graduated in 2018 from the Ecole des Gobelins, Léo d’Oriano sees photography as a transversal practice that he nourishes from his interest in social sciences. He proposes a documentary and sensitive approach of contemporary societies, moving away from immediate emotion, to bear witness, in a more subtle way, to the resilience of social groups in the face of the upheavals of their environment, whether ecological, economic, political...

A recent graduate of the Photography section of the École Supérieure des Arts Saint-Luc Liège and winner of the Roger de Conynck 2020 prize awarded by the Fondation du Roi Baudoin, Layla Saâd’s photography is more about experience than discourse. With a freedom of styles and techniques, she explores the life of alternative worlds created on the margins of society or in reaction to its standard principles.
