New York based photographer and fellow contributor to Food For Your Eyes, Juliana Beasley has been invited last summer by ImageSingulières and Cètavoir for a one-month residency in Sète to draw a personal portrait of the town and the inhabitants.

Juliana Beasley’s personnal approach and interest in human beings that prevailed in her bodies of work, from Lapdancer to Last Stop Rockaway Park, is a welcoming and audacious photographic choice made by Gilles Favier, the festival artistic director. ( And yes, as a “facilitator”, I assume to be responsible for having Juliana been chosen to walk into the footsteps of the past resident in Sète, the swedish photographer Anders Petersen. I am sincerely grateful to Gilles Favier for his trust! )

The experience was challenging and a memorable one for Juliana who landed in the Mediterranean fishing port with no ideas of what she could find here. But at the end, her residency resulted in the book,“Juliana Beasley- Sète #10”,” co-published by Images en manoeuvres editions, with a foreword written by the well-respected curator, writer and founder of Agence Vu’, Christian Caujolle…Certainly a promising sign for Juliana Beasley and her photograhy in France!
