There is a prevailing notion that photography is less appreciated nowadays due to the widespread availability of smartphones, with many considering themselves photographers. However, I believe that having the eye to detect the incongruous moment, the improbable angle, the subtle smile, is not a skill possessed by everyone, especially in a world saturated with images.

Today, photography is moving away from pure technicality and delving more into creativity in the stories it tells or demands us to discern through its increasingly abstract nature.

Photographic art and painting share many similarities but are not always valued on the same scale. Photographic art is about associations.

For the first year, Subtile is partnering with the Arlon Photography Encounters to allow you to discover artists from Luxembourg and warmly invite you to take a 30-minute drive to visit this magnificent exhibition with a highly curated selection for nearly 10 years. The guest of honor is the renowned atmospheric photographer, Christophe Jacrot. Explore in our Gallery one artwork per artist from a series complementary to what you will discover in Arlon.

We look forward to welcoming you to experience 15 visions from photographers primarily from France and Belgium to discuss today’s world.

Find Michel Gelinne and his portraits of the Pende people, taken in Kinshasa in the 1980s with warm colors. Charlotte Pierson, a young photographer who pays tribute to those who have chosen to live on the fringes of society and never leave it. Sophie Loustau and her selection of 4 polaroids that take us on a dreamlike journey between the beauty of the world and the inhumanity, denouncing non-consensual sexual acts. Lionel Briot makes us feel the excitement of popular masses and their enthusiasm during sports events. Jessica Gérard exposes the female body in a vulnerable state, showcasing the marks of time that shape identity. Laurence de Tapol Nesson immerses us in the world of Luxembourgish market gardeners. Thierry Salmon challenges our perception with his almost abstract plant photography. Thierry Ahn delves into the fascinating world of architectural museums. Annaïg Giquel-Donadieu questions the evolution of how we view the world. Christelle Bolmio merges trees to create divine beings. Pascal Sentenac, with his “ex-machina” series, transports us to another dimension within business districts. Marie-Christine Paquot invites us to capture the moment and the light of dance performances. Laurence Vray expresses poetic anatomy, transcendentally writing the energies she wishes to convey. Marianne Grimont boldly explores self-portraiture through juxtaposition, and finally, Michael Massart lightheartedly stages our fear of being buried alive.
