Photographer Mathieu Pernot (b. 1970) specializes in documentary work, but offers a new take on the codes of this genre to develop a multi-voiced narrative. Whether through his own photographic work or the use of different archival material, Mathieu Pernot questions the diversity of means of representation and the very notion of how we make use of the photographic medium. The exhibition The Crossing is the concrete expression of a modern-day narrative with characters who live on the margins of society. The exhibition starts with “Photo Booths,” Mathieu Pernot’s first series of photos, taken between 1995 and 1997, of gypsy children in Arles, ending with their portraits taken in 2013, for the series “Fire,” specially created for the Jeu de Paume.
