About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Jacqueline Salmon

Jacqueline Salmon was born in 1943 and lives in Paris. She studied visual art, architecture and contemporary history at the Sorbonne. Since 1981 she has been creating photographic works evoking the history of places (architecture and landscapes) which she chooses for their symbolic quality with respect to social or political history. She won the Villa Médicis Hors les murs award for her series Entre centre et absence, which combines portraits and places. More than twenty monographs on her work have been published and her images have been seen across Europe. She has curated major exhibitions at the Centre National de la Photographie in Paris, the Musée de l'Élysée in Lausanne and Mai de la photographie in Reims and is currently artistic director of the Urbi & Orbi biennial in Sedan. Her work is represented by the Michèle Chomette gallery in Paris.

Jacqueline Salmon and VU extend their warm thanks to the Consulate General of France in Quebec City for their generous support.

Jacqueline Salmon benefited from an artist's residency at Centre VU for the creation of Géocalligraphies.
