A patron in 2017 of the LUMA Arles Foundation's archives program, an organization that supports creation, the House reinforces its links with art by launching the Prix Dior de la Photographie pour Jeunes Talents. This competition is aimed at rewarding art school students around the world. For this debut edition, the candidates were invited to explore the notions of beauty, color and femininity corresponding to the theme “Woman-Women Faces”.
Yoonkyung Jang caught the eye of the jury, chaired by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, with his vintage-style images in saturated colors. As a result, she received an endowment of ten thousand euros and will have the opportunity to collaborate with the House for an artistic project. Her creations are being exhibited during Les Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles at the Parc des Ateliers from July 2nd to September 23rd. The work of seven other winners selected by the jury will also be on show.
