In 2014, the Hermes Foundation launched “Immersion”, a program of photographers’ residencies and exchanges, exhibitions, and publications with Aperture Foundation in New York. Every two years, the Hermes Foundation also coproduces with Aperture Foundation an exhibition presenting the work of the winning artist of the Henri Cartier Bresson Award. Since 2013, the HCB Award is supported by the Hermès Foundation, which has forged an exclusive alliance with the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation.
After Patrick Faigenbaum in 2015, Aperture will present the work of Claude Iverné at the Aperture Gallery.

In 1999, Claude Iverné first set off along the Darb al Arba’ïn (Forty Days Trail), the ancient caravan route linking Egypt and the sultanate of Darfur. Ever since, Iverné has been working in the region, focusing on North Sudan in particular, wandering through the country to create a body of work. His photographs use an anthropological approach while simultaneously creating space for the viewer’s imagination.

In 2015, with the support of the HCB Award, Iverné continued his project, this time traveling through South Sudan. Bilad es Sudan records the precipitous transformation of South Sudan, mapping its historical details and contemporary landscape. This second phase mirrors his previous body of work, but while he depicted the North in black and white, the South is shown in color.

As a result of the political climate in South Sudan at the time, many Sudanese citizens fled to France. Iverné followed them there, exploring this journey from the nomadic tents and deserts of Sudan to the outskirts of French cities. Iverné’s photographs investigate the economic, cultural, and environmental changes of this country, concluding his Sudanese epic.

This exhibition, showcased at the Aperture Gallery, first shown at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, is one “draft” of this immense work, one of the strata of this collection, in collaboration with the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, partner of the HCB Award. The book Claude Iverné – Bilad es Sudan, published by Éditions Xavier Barral, accompanies the exhibition, providing a different reading, a transformed essay, a friable stone in the fragile edifice of history.
