Press Release – Paris, 10 November 2021
Paris Photo 2021
Pernod Ricard (Paris:RI) will be exhibiting its annual artistic campaign created by Olivier Culmann at Paris Photo, the international photography fair that will be held in Paris from 11 to 14 November 2021 at the temporary exhibition hall, the Grand Palais Ephémère.
For more than 10 years, Pernod Ricard has entrusted an internationally renowned photographer with its annual “carte blanche”. This year, the Group wanted to pay tribute to the men and women who are the lifeblood of the cafés, bars and restaurants throughout France. Although very badly affected by the Covid pandemic, they have, each on their own scale, maintained a social connection with their local communities.
French photographer Olivier Culmann, a member of the collective Tendance Floue, was chosen to showcase this “resilient” community spirit. In this way, ten personal experiences have been photographed across France. Passionate entrepreneurs or people who have moved to the country in search of a different life – all had in common a desire to share and to withstand the pandemic. It is these stories and these places full of life that Olivier Culmann depicts, playing with convention, using photo booths, postcards, posed portraits, team photos, and architectural and documentary shots that visitors will be free to enjoy within the Pernod Ricard space. The artist also pays tribute to all those who have made these human stories possible: local representatives, suppliers, residents and employees of Pernod Ricard France.
An official partner of Paris Photo, Pernod Ricard is participating in this prestigious show dedicated to photography for the seventh consecutive year. This exhibition, which reflects the Group's commitment to its "Creator of conviviality" promise, is also reflected in its support for 1000 Cafés, an initiative of the SOS Group, whose mission is to reopen village cafés and bistros, and of which the Group is a major partner.
