"Mutations, l’image et ses possible" - Photographic Exhibition in Fez

Organised by Morocco's French Institute as part of the 2015 France/Morocco cultural season, the 9th International Photos of Fez takes place from the 14th of November to the 15th of December

The exhibition, curated by Jeanne Mercier, is titled Mutations, l’image et ses possible (Changes: the image and its possibilities).

In the last decade, the practice of photography is changing our image of the world. In the last five years, these changes are particularly noticeable in Africa where the younger generation uses the potential of digital media to change the methods of developing and  dissemination - allowing the image to become more fluid.

With the advent of digital technologies - mobile phones, tablets, webcams, Flickr, selfies, Instagram - there has been an  explosion of images on the web and social networks. What has emerged is a globalised world, connected with ever more immediate visibility.

The Fez Photo International photographers have in common a desire to break down barriers and become part of a global culture that questions the new temporalities and realities.

The curator, Jeanne Mercier, is an art critic and independent curator based between Europe and Africa. She is co-founder and chief editor of Afrique in visu, around the platform in Africa. She has been a photographer since 2006.
