My dissertation investigates the narrative photography emerged in the US around the 1970s and its influence on the formation of photographic discourse in France throughout the 1980s. By narrative photography, I refer to the photographic experiments that appropriate certain qualities of narrative forms, ranging from books to theater. With the financial support of Mitacs Globalink Research Award, my stay in Paris will allow me to examine the original photobooks and critical writings produced in France during the 1980s. The result will buttress my argument that the transatlantic fascination with narrative photography originated in a specific epistemological aspiration for the medium during the 1970s and 1980s. In addition to the successful completion of my dissertation and the publication of its chapters as independent papers, the proposed research will weave a vast network of institutions and individuals, which opens up fecund potentialities for future collaborations across the Atlantic.
