Pernod Ricard

The Annual Carte Blanche

Photographer Selection – Artistic Direction
Audiovisual Production - Exhibition Curation and Production

In 2014, the Pernod Ricard Group commissioned Fany Dupêchez and 5 Etoiles Productions to provide artistic direction for its annual photographic campaign. Committed as it has been from the start to the very latest photographic trends, the Group gave carte blanche to an internationally recognized photographer to shoot portraits of twenty of its employees from around the world, thus sharing a singular artistic experience with them. Since 2015, the photographic campaign has been exhibited at the Grand Palais, as part of Paris Photo.

Photographers in the most recent campaigns: Vee Speers, Li Wei, Omar Victor Diop, Martin Schoeller.

In collaboration with 5 Etoiles Productions, photography and video production agency.

Médecins du Monde

Exhibition celebrating thirty years of activity by the NGO in France

Artistic Direction – Exhibition curation & production
Audiovisual production - catalogue publication

Mise au poing is an exhibition that helps marginalized people to regain an image, to give them a face, and thus creates an image of them through the gaze of the film-maker and the six photographers who went to meet them : Christophe Acker, Claudine Doury, Alberto Garcia-Alix, Cédric Gerbehaye, Valérie Jouve, Denis Rouvre, Henk Wildschut.

For thirty years, Médecins du Monde has been fighting against marginalization in France, by providing those least privileged with access to care, and by acting as witnesses and pleading on their behalf.


Counsel - Artistic Direction
Exhibition curation and production - Publication(s)

From 2008 to 2016, Fany Dupêchez and Pascal Michaut have worked alongside Olympus, advising them on the choices to make in support of photographers and thus to position the brand at the Rencontres d’Arles. At the same time they have devised and staged the Olympus photographic conversations between photographers of international renown and students graduating from the Ecole nationale supérieure de la photographie.

Each year, this exchange of views around art and training brings together great names and emerging young talents in the world of photography, featuring them in both exhibitions and discussions:
Sarah Moon,  Stanley Greene, Jean-Christian Bourcart, Françoise Huguier, Antoine d'Agata, Denis Rouvre, Dorothée Smith, Paolo Woods, Denis Darzacq, Corinne Mercadier, Olivier Culmann, Klavdij Sluban avec Lise Dua, Jeannie Abert, Matthieu Rosier, Sajede Sharifi, Santiago Torres, Sven Daniel, Rebecca Topakian, Elsa Leydier, Swen Renault, Barnabé Moinard, Pauline Rousseau, Florian Maurer.

In 2015, an exhibition was held at the Galerie Filles du Calvaire of works by the photographers who had been involved in the Olympus Photographic Conversations since 2013, and a book featuring the same works was published by Filigranes.

Festival devoted to portrait photography

Artistic Direction – Curation

Founded by Fany Dupêchez, Pascal Michaut and Karim Boulhaya, the Festival is a popular event with a programme devised according to highly-demanding quality standards. It features portraits of all kinds, from the documentary tradition to the fictional, from the intimate to more conceptual schemes, offering a journey through portrait photography in all its forms and traditions.

Portrait(s) supports contemporary creative work and each year invites a photographer to take part in a residence in Vichy.

Since 2013, the festival has enabled the public to discover or rediscover the work of some fifty famous and emerging photographers, thereby helping them to see the art of the portrait in many different ways.
