Meet the artist: Antoine Vincens de Tapol

Just back from the holidays, we kicked off the Winter season in the Bordeaux winelands with the opening of a new exhibit at Château Palmer (Margaux).

“Balkans” is a series of photos taken using a Rolleiflex between Montenegro and Albany, by photographer Antoine Vincens de Tapol orginally from Cognac, France. Anthropologist, his quest through this obscure series of photographs was to reflect on a population and on the individual’s imprint within a community, regardless of its territory, by capturing instants of daily living.Worth a visit for photo and wine lovers!

De retour des fêtes de fin d’année, nous avons démarré l’hiver médocain par le vernissage hier d’une exposition au Château Palmer (Margaux).

“Balkans” est une série de photos réalisée entre le Monténégro et l’Albanie au moyen d’un Rolleiflex par le photographe Antoine Vincens de Tapol, né à Cognac, France. Anthropologue de formation, sa volonté à travers ce travail obscur est de sacraliser l’instant afin de montrer la place qu’occupe un individu et la trace qu’il laisse dans son milieu collectif, quelque soit son territoire.

Un joli moment pour amateurs de photo et de grands vins.

Tried it. Loved it. Shared it.
