3 CITES, 12 HOURS, 12 THEMES


FRAME, L’Asilo, and Pacte Tunisien are teaming up to bring you the 2015 Photo Marathon. Across the Mediterranean region, photographers will take to the streets to simultaneously document 12 themes in 12 hours resulting in a collection of photos depicting one day in the life of Beirut, Naples, and Tunis. Together, we will document our cities, people, and communities to produce a rich archive through the eyes of large and diverse groups. The photos that are produced over the span of 12 hours will provide a rich resource to learn about each other and to spot our similarities and differences through the creativity and language of photography.

Join us!

This event is open to all levels – professionals, amateurs, and enthusiasts (18+)

                    Patrick Baz, photo-reporter franco-libanais né à Beyrouth en 1963, est directeur photo de l’AFP pour le Moyen-Orient depuis 20 ans. Il n’a que 12 ans quand la guerre du Liban éclate, en 1975.

Le Liban devient son terrain d’apprentissage. Entre 1980 et 1988, il travaille comme photo-journaliste freelance, ses images sont publiées dans des magazines internationaux tels que Paris Match, Time, NewsWeek, Stern, Spiegel, L’Express, etc. En 1989, l’Agence France Presse (AFP) lui donne l’opportunité de couvrir la première Intifada. Entre temps, il couvre d’autres conflits qui secouent la planète, notamment la première guerre du Golfe en 1990, le Kurdistan en 1991, la Somalie, l’enfer de Sarajevo en 1993, les guerres d’Irak et d’Afghanistan dans les années 2000 et plus récemment les soulèvements en Egypte et en Libye.

                    Sophia Baraket
                    Born in Tunisia, Sophia Baraket grew up in an image-oriented environment. At 18, she moved to Paris to study at an international photography school. During a work placement at Magnum Photos, Baraket studied historic archives and got to know the work of great photographers. Returning to Tunis in 2005, she organized events and exhibitions in which she participated herself. In 2010, while in California, she took part in a project about the many ‘don’ts’ in American society, returning just in time to start covering the Tunisian revolution.

                    Baraket was the first Tunisian photographer to arrive at the border to document the exodus of refugees from Libya. In 2011, she participated in a project by the street artist and photographer JR. Baraket concentrates on documenting stories, as she did in projects on child mothers in Uganda, and on Western countries dumping their waste in North Africa. The latter project was selected for the 2011 African Photography Biennial in Bamako, Mali.
