This new edition of the photography programme by the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès benefits from a partnership between the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris.
Founded in 2014, Immersion, A French-American Photography Commission is an annual photography programme featuring exchange residencies, exhibitions and publications. On a yearly alternating basis, Immersion is open to either photographers based in France, who will be mentored by a French professional as they create a new photographic work in the United States, or to photographers based in the United States, who will be mentored by an anglophone professional as they create a new photographic work in France.
This fifth edition was overseen by Agnès Sire, the artistic director of the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson. This year’s laureate, Vasantha Yogananthan, born in Grenoble, France, in 1985, will undertake his residency in the United States in 2020, prior to a solo exhibition at SFMOMA in 2021 and at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris in fall 2021.
