Born in 1961, Antoine Agoudjian has devoted himself to photography for over thirty years. A former collaborator of the Rapho agency, decisive encounters, notably with Robert Doisneau and Robert Delpire, have placed his work in the humanist photography movement.
His work in black and white is dedicated to the memory of the history of the Armenian people. Covering the historical places of conflicts, Antoine Agoudjian builds a singular work where history, its trace and its echo break the imposed silence. Since 2015, the introduction of color with the coverage of the wars in Iraq, Syria and Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh, subject presented at Visa pour l’Image this year) testifies to a new stage in his work, a passage from the memory of the past to the present history.
