David Fathi — Wolfgang ou le principe d’exclusion



David Fathi
Wolfgang ou le principe d’exclusion

Ends in 24 days: October 22 → November 19, 2016

After completing a Master’s degree in Mathematics & Computer Science, David Fathi starts an artistic research in photography side-by-side with his career in engineering. This double practice can be perceived in his photographic work as an intense passion for science and the limits of knowledge. Through strange, little-known narratives he shines a light on the cognitive biases which make us confuse fact and fiction.

Anecdotal, a series about the seemingly fictional, but absolutely true, stories around nuclear testing has received the jury’s special mention for the prestigious Prix Levallois. While Wolfgang, his new series retracing a strange myth about one of the founders of quantum physics, has won the Grand Prize Fotofestiwal in Lodz, as well as the Arles Photo Folio Award, and will be exhibited in the 2017 official program.
