LEICA OSKAR BARNACK AWARD 2016

  • LEICA AWARD 2016


  • Exhibition

    For the first time, Leica presents during Paris Photo the Leica Oscar Barnack and the Leica Newcomer Awards, both given to two French photographers.

    The Leica Oscar Barnack 2016 Award is awarded to Scarlett Coten for her series Mectoub. Started in 2012, the series of portraits was taken in North Africa and Middle East, focusing on the identity of an emancipated generation of men.

    The Leica Newcomer Award goes to Clémentine Schneidermann who documented the life of children in socials housing in a mining aera in Wales, in September 2015. Between social documentary and performance, Clémentine offers a kind and poetic vision.

    This international award created in 1979 at the centenary the birth of Oskar Barnack, pays homage to the eponymous inventor of the 24 x 36 Leica camera in 1914.
