Resident artist at CENTQUATRE-PARIS
Born in 1970, Mathieu Pernot received his degree in 1996 from the National School of Photography of Arles.
Working in series, with an approach that is close to documentary photography, he looks to show subjects that are on the margins of our society: Gypsy populations ("The Gorgan", 1995-2015) or migrating populations (“The Migrants”, 2009), prison environments (“The Yellers”, 2001-2004) or psychiatric environments (“The Asylum of photographs”, 2010-2013), or reconsider subjects like the social utopia of large urban ensembles (“Brave new world”, 2006). His work was rewarded with the Nadar Prize in 2013 and the Niepce Prize in 2014, the year his exhibition la traversée was shown at the Jeu de Paume.
