Nacivet Art Gallery presents the art of Titouan Lamazou in an exhibition titled “Women Around the World”. Titouan Lamazou: Women Around the World
Lamazou is an artist, documentarian, ethnographer, and it might be argued, an activist and humanitarian. For six years, Lamazou has traveled the world photographing 230 women and recording their biographies. The resulting images are beautiful and oftentimes haunting. They reveal an artist that has a unique eye and ability to share the experiences of the peoples he encounters.
Titouan Lamazou is a life long sojourner. Born in 1955 in Morocco, at age seventeen he decided to become a navigator and spent the next several years sailing on the seas of the world. In 1990, he won the Vendée Globe – a solo, unassisted sailing race around the world.
Long accustomed to documenting the people and sites he encounters on his travels via still photography, drawings, paintings and film - Lamazou current project started in 2001 and was proclaimed a United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization "Artist for Peace" Project
His current journey has taken him to some of the most remote corners of the planet, including a memorable odyssey through the Indonesian archipelago in 2003. The result is a collection of photographs, sketches and video recordings, which have been exhibited worldwide and collected into several catalogues published by Gallimard, as well as shown in short segments on French television.
