Claude Iverné, Bilad es Sudan
May 11, 2017 — Jul 30, 2017
The Bilad es Sudan exhibition presenting the work of Claude Iverné, winner of the 2015 HCB Award, is on show at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson from May 11 to July 30, 2017.
In 1999, Iverné set off along the Darb al Arba'ïn, Forty Day Trail, the ancient caravan route linking Egypt and the sultanate of Darfur. Here, he discovered a country steeped in contrasting influences, and the project to document this land of Sudan was born. Other trips followed. Wandering seemed the obvious choice for him, life rather than a journey, even to the point of learning Arabic language.
For the 2015 HCB Award, Iverné wanted to continue his project in South Sudan, as he attempted to sketch out its historical details and map its contemporary contours. This second phase is intended to mirror his project in North Sudan.
