CYRIL ABAD, MENTOR AWARD 2017 WINNER


Le reportage « IN GOD WE TRUST, voyage au coeur du business de la foi » est une exploration de la société américaine au travers du prisme religieux.
Dans un environnement social particulièrement morose couronné par l’élection de Donald Trump (qui a recueilli plus de 80 % du vote blanc chrétien), la religion est plus que jamais un marqueur pertinent pour mieux appréhender l’évolution de la société américaine.
Dans ce reportage je m’intéresse à la manière dont l’offre religieuse (exclusivement d’obédience protestante : plus de 52 % de la population américaine) se réinvente en suivant les évolutions du libéralisme. Et comment elle cible avec acuité les différents segments de la société américaine par l’usage de techniques de conquête de marché propres aux multinationales en vue d’optimiser le processus d’évangélisation. En balayant l’ensemble des grands chantiers (entertainment, nouvelles technologies, athéisme, immigration, LGBTQ, contrôle des armes, santé, avortement, éducation, tribus et autres groupes d’affinités sociales et ethniques, etc.) j’ai pu identifier un certain nombre de groupes ou niches aux spécificités originales parfois insolites et ciblés par les églises. Ces groupes sont de véritables indicateurs de l’évolution sociale, restant persuadé que c’est à la marge qu’on trouve les ébauches des grandes évolutions.

The report « IN GOD WE TRUST, a journey to the heart of the business of faith » is an exploration of American society through the religious prism.
In a particularly gloomy social environment crowned by the election of Donald Trump (who won more than 80% of the white Christian vote), religion is more than ever a relevant marker to better understand the evolution of American society.
In this report I am interested in the way in which the religious offer (exclusively of Protestant obedience: more than 52% of the American population) reinvents itself by following the evolutions of liberalism. And how it sharply targets the different segments of American society by using market conquest techniques specific to multinationals to optimize the evangelization process. By sweeping through all the major projects (entertainment, new technologies, atheism, immigration, LGBTQ, arms control, health, abortion, education, tribes and other social and ethnic affinity groups, etc.) I was able to identify a certain number of groups or niches with original characteristics, sometimes unusual and targeted by the churches. These groups are true indicators of social change, believing that it is on the margin that the major changes are outlined.

Welcome to Ark Encounter, the creationist amusement park. Ark Encounter, the new tourist attraction of Williamstown in Kentucky is no more and no less than the true copy of Noah's Ark "according to its builders, the creationist Christian fundamentalists of" Answers in Genesis ". This huge 150m long building with a total area of 10,000 m2 built in "respect for biblical proportions" is a temple to creationism and its doctrine that God created earth and all living beings 6000 years ago in 6 days.This project was very controversial. Ark Encounter cost more than $ 102 million, partly funded by donations and the state of Kentucky, which was unable to avoid a subsidy,following a court ruling. Taxpayers, whether they adhere to creative theories or not, have therefore had to contribute to the financing of the project.
The most radical creationists reject the theory of evolution and consider that the human being was created by God. The Young Earth movement therefore considers that our planet was created 6000 years ago, according to the sacred texts, that is to say in 6 days.
You wanted to know about Noah, how he managed to build the ark by himself. Nothing is left to chance and everything is explained in detail, diagrams, infographies and animations in support.
Nail of the visit. A mural and moral cartoon tells the story of a student experiencing existential doubts. Rather than turning to faith, it succumbs to boys, to alcohol and dark in the darkest decadence. The divine wrath does not wait very long ... It ends in a bath of blood and suffering.
Religious schools and universities regularly visit the ark. On a scientific level this park is denounced as a dangerous absurdity. Several associations condemn disinformation similar to child maltreatment.
Welcome to Holy Land Experience, the 100% biblical amusement park in Mickey Country, Orlando, Florida. Expect to be inspired "is the ambitious slogan of the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, an amusement park with the theme of the Old and New Testaments. The park bought by TBN, the world's first evangelical TV channel, offers you a unique and wildly crazy Kitch experience, anachronistic, and very commercial, against a backdrop of evangelical reconstruction. Immerse yourself in a miniature Jerusalem, featuring precious manuscripts and attractions in a temple decor and plastic caverns.
Here you are in the holy land in the heart of Orlando. Marvin Rosenthal, a Jewish "Christian" pastor, the creator of Park Holy Land, guarantees a unique experience: you will never see Jesus so closely.
5 times a week, at 4 pm from Tuesday to Saturday, a false Jesus wrings himself with pain on the cross while Roman soldiers whip him. The play that lasts nearly 75 min is the most realistic and violent event of the Holy Land. During the crucifixion, the sound of the hammer can be heard very much. In the public, many visitors raise their arms to heaven, cry and beg forgiveness..
Jesus is the super star of the Holy Land Experience Park. For many visitors, touching the false messiah is a true blessing.
The resurrection of Christ as if you were there!
On Jerusalem Street Market you will be able to witness one of the highlights of the visit, a reconstruction of the scene of Jesus carrying the cross to Mount Golgotha, crossing an excited crowd, sometimes shocked but still brandishing a mobile phone. Sanguinolant and violent at will.
SeaCoast Church, a non-denominational church that attracts more and more atheists. SeaCoast Church is a megachurch without label or denominational church founded in 1991 in Mount Pleasant on the outskirts of Charleston, South Carolina. The founding pastor Greg Surratt rejected the advances of the Evangelical Church and decided to develop its own autonomous campuses with this innovative idea to relay the services live on screen.Today, 12 SeaCoast campuses have been established in North and South Carolina. Every Sunday more than 15,000 people attend the service. SeaCoast, beyond its biblical message, is increasingly attracting atheists in search of belonging through a non-proselyte message and practices that are far removed from religious rituals.
While the parents attend the service, the children are grouped by age group and supervised by church staff, all Kid Staff members wear a blue tshirt. Many activities are offered to children. For the elderly, teenagers, concerts are scheduled and games rooms with billiards and ping pong tables are available.
Every service begins and ends with a great rock concert ... Christian of course. People dance and pray by sharing their love with God.
Come and pray without leaving your air-conditioned car at the Christian Drive Inn Church in Daytona Beach. For 63 years the church of the faithful of Jesus has gathered on the lawn of an old outdoor cinema in Daytona Beach, Florida. Drive Inn Church offers two services every Sunday morning. Whether it rains or sells, the cars come to park in front of an altar on a balcony and listen to the sermon broadcast on a radio wave reserved 88.5 FM. As the churches empty, more than 600 parishioners come every weekend to enjoy the mass, comfortably settled in their air-conditioned car, some still in pijama or ready for the beach. They can come dressed as they like, take with them their pets. And stay in the privacy of their car. To reconnect with the other parishioners, the Drive Inn Church offers a service between the two departments to gather around a coffee and donuts.
The Reverend Rob collects himself before the beginning of the service, on the mezzanine which overlooks the parking. The microphone suspended on the left allows to retransmit the sermon live.
Let us embark with this young couple on board a nice convertible to attend the second service on Sunday morning. Under the car radio that spits on 88.5 FM the sermon of Pastor Bob, you guess small plastic white capsules filled with grape juice for communion.
Every Sunday, the Rob Reverend spoke on the balcony of the Christian Drive Inn Church in front of a car park. The sermon is broadcast live on the bandwidth 88.5 FM.

HUGO AYMAR, WINNER OF THE MIAMI STREETPHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL 2017

I see a group of refugees sitting under the archway at the edge of the Ourcq Canal, on the Stalingrad place. It’s very hot in Paris this July, temperatures reach 35 ° C in Paris. I’m going above to photograph one of the youngsters diving from the edge. I do a series of pictures before the police come to ask the group to leave. It is only when I come back and edit my pictures that I see the pigeon that completes the picture.

CYRIL ABAD, 2ND PLACE MIAMI STREETPHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL 2017

It was the night in Daytona shores. I was going back to my motel. As I walked through the parking of this motel I stopped to photograph the lit ground floor and a door opened. I continued to shoot and a Marylin went out, with a roller suitcase,that would surely go to work as a transformist dancer in a bar. It was a real and incredible chance. It can also be part of the magic of street photography…

ARISTIDE ECONOMOPOULOS, 3RD PLACE MIAMI STREETPHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL 2017

Circus performs wait in the wings prior to entering the big top during a performance of the Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus. Jackson, IL, USA.

YANN LÉVY

The night falls on the Bauer stadium in St Ouen on the night of early August 2017. The ultras of the Rino Della Negra stand sing « Le Red Star c’ est uniquement à Bauer » to the rhythm of the drum. For 2 years the Red Star FC could not play in its historical stronghold. This first game of the season is especially an opportunity to celebrate the return home.

MARIE-PIERRE LAMBELIN

To get lost in the dunes, and at the bend of a path, in the middle of oyats, rain and rainbows, to fall on this little red girl dressed in green, in symbiosis with the elements… to contemplate the show… to be her… Se perdre dans les dunes, et au détour d’un chemin, au milieu des oyats, de la pluie et des arcs en ciel, tomber sur cette petite fille rousse habillée de vert, en symbiose avec les éléments… contempler le spectacle… être elle…

DJAC GRAF

Je pourrais juste dire que se promener le nez en l’air est une mauvaise idée… C’est vers le bas qu’il faut regarder ! I could just say that walking around with your nose in the air is a bad idea… It’s downside down that you have to look at! ©JG/Divergence-Images
