Pierre & Alexandra Boulat 2015 Grant Announced

Photo by Alfonso Moral / Cosmos

The Pierre & Alexandra Boulat 2015 Grant, supported by LaScam, has been awarded to Spanish photographer Alfonso Moral of the Cosmos Photo Agency. Alfonso’s recent work has focused on the city of Tripoli, Lebanon. The wounds of the conflict between the Sunni and Alawi communities have transformed the city into a small scale reproduction of the conflict prevailing in neighboring Syria. The project, “Shadows of Tripoli,” aims to show daily life in this divided city and the constant problems faced by a population that is permanently threatened.

The jury was made of: Pascal Briard (ex-Canon), Jean-François Camp (head of Laboratory Central Dupon Images), Jean-Claude Coutausse (photographer representing LaScam), Simon Edwards (artistic director of Salon de la Photo), Sylvie Grumbach (Head of 2ème bureau), Pascal Maitre (photographer) and Marc Simon (Editor-in-chief of VSD magazine).

Alfonso Moral received his grant on September 3, 2015 during an evening screening at the Festival Visa pour l’Image in Perpignan. He has 9 months to produce his story.
