Young Adventurers Chasing the Horizon


2018 - Selected Artist

The series Young Adventurers Chasing the Horizon was born in 2016, as Lucie Boiron took an interest in refugee encampments in Paris. This is the first chapter of a vast project, a multidimensional work that combines artistic and documentary photography, and video. Portraits of men as anonymous heroes, abandoned objects and ruins shape a world with blurry outlines.

About the artist

Lucile Boiron wasborn in France in 1990. She lives and works in Paris. After she studied applied arts, she joined the École Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière and completes her internships at the photography department at Le Monde and at the VU’ agency. Her work revolves around the humaneness. Her photography operates with a certain directness: it does not seem to be playing around with the object, and shows a rigorous approach.
