Fashion / Photography wins Bourse du Talent
Charles-Henry Bédué, represented by nineteensixtyeight, was awarded the Bourse du Talent #67 (2016) in the fashion category for his series Le Feu au Poudres, and was officially recognized yesterday at the opening of the inaugural exhibition at the Bibliotheque Nationale Française.

Charles was commissioned by Pitti Immagine to document scenes on and off the runway for the 90th edition of Pitti Uomo (June 2016), the results of which can be viewed in online exhibitions hosted by Pitti Discovery and nineteensixtyeight.
Begun in 1998, Bourse du Talent is a prestigious prize that recognizes talent and distinction in photography from young artists in the categories of reportage, landscape, portrait, and fashion.
(Works from certain award winners will also be selected for the collections of the BnF Department of Prints and Photography.) For the first time this year, a book has also been produced of the winners' work, published by Editions Delpire.
