Augustin Le Gall

Photojournalist

Augustin Le Gall lives and works between France and Tunisia. His work focuses on documentary and narrative photography, in which the portrait-report is central. He collaborates mainly with the international press, non-governmental organisations, and international institutions. He has been part of the Haytham Pictures agency (France) since 2013.

With a keen interest in the Mediterranean area, humans and their habits are at the core of his work. He considers his photography to be about collective memory and identity constructions, notably in the context of traumatic experiences with a long-term perspective.

His work has been showcased regularly, especially at the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MuCEM) in Marseille, the Islamic Culture Institute in Paris, the Amnesty International headquarters in London, Amnesty International Canada in Montreal, the film festival and International Forum for Human Rights in Geneva (2015) and in Paris (2016), the national library in Tunis, and the French Institute in Tunisia.
