"For Jump the Wall, Vincen went to several Belgian prisons – where you cannot photograph the buildings nor the people, and where the spontaneity of encounters does not exist. It is after all easy to understand the attraction of this impossible place, and why Vincen wanted to carry out a collaborative photographic project there. Because photography is also a means of resistance, a way of getting into institutions – prison or museum, for that matter – and of giving a role to those who have no legitimacy there. A way of bringing a certain tension into it, which is often chaotic, but above all fertile, joyful and always generous."
Extract from "The eye, the hand and the ear" by Danaé Panchaud, Vincen Beeckman – Jump the Wall, Editions Photo Elysée, 2023.
The result of a partnership between Photo Elysée and Parmigiani Fleurier, the Prix Elysée is an award that supports production in the field of photography.
