Pascal Amoyel holds an MFA from the French National School of Photography (Arles) and a MA degree in Contemporary History, Université Paris 1 Sorbonne. His projects focuses on specific facets of cities, regions or countries such as history, geography, culture, while staying open to serendipity and to the small accidents specific to analog photography. In the resulting series, Pascal combines straight pictures and intuitive sequencing, turning territories into personal places. The conjunction of documentary style photographs and lyrical approach subtly modifies our perception of these territories. He broadens his approach of photography with different practices that are the many forms of a relationship with images : curating, teaching, book design. More specifically, he’s working on the place of photography inside the space of the book. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and is held by the Print and Photography Department of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, as well as by private collectors.
