The Petite Boule Noire Gallery, in Paris, will present from 16 September 2012 to 19 January 2013 the exhibition “Families Welcome”, a collection of photographs by Guillaume Pinet.
Guillaume Pinet, graduated from the National School of Decorative Arts, was involved in the foundation of the press agency MYOP, where he specialised in press photography. He managed MYOP for years before deciding to open a gallery, the Petite Boule Noire, dedicated to the works of contemporary photographers. In 2012, he received two awards for his work on the Egyptian revolution. As regular collaborator to Libération and Les Inrockuptibles on social issues, he has as well his own projects, as for instance “Families Welcome”, the current exhibition of the Petite Boule Noire Gallery.
“Families Welcome” deals with the issue of childhood through its fears, challenges and sensations. Guillaume Pinet’s photographs will no doubt remind to anyone moments of their childhood. The public will certainly be moved and even feel nostalgia watching these photographs. Guillaume Pinet captured in black and white time going by, the fugacity and intensity of a siblings relationship. He refuses to produce perfect images and prefers the authenticity of life in its splendor, with blur and movement.
