Each year, ImageSingulières invites a photographer in residence in Sète and around the Bassin de Thau. The selected artist is given carte blanche to produce a work on the territory and its inhabitants. For the year 2021, the Swiss photographer Hugues de Wurstemberger, known as H2W, has been chosen.
He first became known for his work on the Pontifical Swiss Guard, where he joined as an auxiliary and of which he delivered a subjective vision captured from the inside that caused a scandal when it appeared in the press. Generally on the fringe of current events, Hugues de Wurstemberger focuses on the daily life and intimacy of forgotten populations, on the verge of extinction, or hit by the loss of their territories. This is how he has worked on the peasant world, from the Fribourg Pre-Alps to Zambia via the Somme, or on the Saharawi people.
