French, born in 1982 at Pessac (France), Samuel Gratacap lives and works in Paris. A plastic artist, he studied art at the Higher School of Fine Arts in Marseille. His work, which is both sensitive and objective, stands at the crossroads of photojournalism and contemporary art. Departing from media clichés and exploring a range of photographic techniques (medium format, polaroids, etc.) and contemporary artistic techniques (drawing, video, writing, etc.), he has created a new relationship between time and topicality via an effectively constructed artistic discourse.

It is a pleasure to welcome this artist in the frame of the European Month of Photography (EMOP) 2017.
