Winner of the 2013 edition of The Man and the Environment contest

"Prabaranna, Ramu, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh"
“Prabaranna, Ramu, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh”

Groupe Photo Média International and the Centre for Sustainable Development are pleased to announce the winner of the fourth edition of the photography contest The Man and the Environment organized by Zoom Photo Festival Saguenay, International Meeting of Photojournalism. The theme, Man and the Environment, proposes a look at the way Man, in the largest sense of the word, can be influenced by his environment, that is to say by the conditions, both natural and cultural, that make up the frame of his life and that are susceptible to have an impact on him.

The selection committee comprised of photographers Carolina Hayeur (Agence Stock Photo), Paul Chiasson (Canadian Press), Jacques Boissinot (Canadian Press), Jacques Nadeau (Le Devoir), Éric Côté (freelance photographer), Amélie Ferland-Dufresne (Director communications and programming, Centre for Sustainable Development) and Aude Crispel (Web developer, Centre for Sustainable Development) have chosen the story of french photographer Claudio Cambon.

FESTIVALS, VIOLENCE, CATHARSIS : RELIGIOUS CELEBRATIONS IN BANGLADESH AND THE EASTERN SUBCONTINENT 

Bangladesh is a country of immense cultural diversity, as evidenced by its many religious festivals. These allow people to discover the long history of different ethnic, religious and linguistic communities that make up this country too often depicted as poor and afflicted by disasters. These cultural groups have influenced each other and often borrowed from one another for centuries, if not thousands of years. The coexistence of these different groups and their convergence provide proof of a social fabric finely developed and of an interleaving now threatened by the deplorable growth of communalism.

I wanted to document these festivities, not only in order to enhance their already known aspects, but also in order to highlight their forgotten and endangered aspects.

To make this video, Romane LeGallou and Loriane Richard, students in ATM Cégep de Jonquière had access to thousands of photos taken by Le Devoir’s photographer. The video “Carré Rouge” was produced by Zoom Photo Festival Saguenay International meeting of photojournalism in conjunction with Art and Media Technology (ATM) CEGEP de Jonquière.

“Carré Rouge” Exposition

Few news photographers supply daily current affairs images that stand out like those of Jacques Nadeau.  Newspapers that appreciate the finesse of his work are even rarer.  As a reader, we develop a taste for quality. During the student protests in Quebec known as the ‘Printemps Érable’, Nadeau didn’t wait for the situation to degenerate before capturing the inventiveness of the protesters.  He was there for the audacious « maNUfestations» a nude protest; he was there for the ‘burial of universally accessible education’, the ‘Rite of spring’ concert, the first rumblings of demonstrations, and so on. A photo that reflects a frank account of current affairs as seen by the photographer and us, tells a complete story.  The image can stand alone in a book or, better yet, within the frame of an exhibit.
