Raymond Meeks is the sixth laureate of Immersion, a French-American Photography Commission by the Fondation dentreprise Hermès. This new edition of the Foundations programme dedicated to contemporary photography has been organized with the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York and the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris.
The mentor for this sixth edition is David Campany, Managing Director of Programs at ICP. Raymond Meeks will carry out his residency in France in 2022. The resulting work will be shown as part of an exhibition at ICP in September, 2023, joining that of the two previous laureates, Vasantha Yogananthan (France) and Gregory Halpern (United States), and will travel to Paris for a solo show at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in February, 2024. A bilingual publication dedicated to his work will be published to coincide with the exhibition at ICP.
The Immersion programme is not related to the HCB Award, which is also supported by the Fondation dentreprise Hermès.
