The new version of The Eye of Photography website includes a brand new feature: “The Eye of the Galleries “, which will provide 360° virtual exhibition visits. We are launching this new gallery today with the winners of Carte Blanche PMU contest and the chance to rediscover Thierry Fontaine’s exhibition, which recently came to a close at the Centre Pompidou, together with the work of the five previous winners: Léa Habourdin and Thibaut Brunet (2014), Kourtney Roy (2013), Olivier Cablat (2012), Mohamed Bourouissa (2011) and Malik Nejmi (2010).
Thierry Fontaine’s photographs produced as part of Carte blanche PMU can also be seen from 12 to 15 November 2015 at the Galerie des Filles du Calvaire stand at the Paris Photo Show.
We would like to thank Françoise Vogt, head of cultural sponsorship at PMU, Abvent, our new patron and Stéphane Desmulie, designer at Abvent, for their readiness to help put together this first gallery.
