The jury of the third edition of PICTO LAB / EXPERIMENTER L'IMAGE met in mid-February and chose Thomas Paquet's project, for his systematized and artisanal approach to diurnal variations, which he develops through meticulous devices, pushing ever further the encounter between light, space and time.

Represented by the Galerie Bigaignon, Thomas Paquet's work has been the subject of several solo exhibitions and has also been presented at shows and fairs such as Paris Photo or
