From reportage to documentary, Joan BARDELETTI’s work gives a particular attention to the coherence of the photographic form and the underlying journalistic subject. He is in particular interested how people live and feel during events or within structures that go beyond them (revolution, war, administration, firm…). He focuses his work on long and in-depth photo essay to long linked but distanced from the hot news.

He became a photographer in 2004 after a brief engineering career. He joigned the Picturetank agency in 2005 and become part of its Board in 2008. His first commission work “Equinoxes” won the Photo Service Price during the RIP Arles in 2005. Then he followed the birth, life and death of a revolution in South America (projected at Visa pour l’Image in 2005 and 3rd Price of Documentary and Social Photography in 2006). He then produced a photo essay on a propaganda travel organized in the Xinjiang province by the chinese government (exhibited by Picturetank during Visa pour l’Image in 2006, then in photo gallery in Bordeaux and Montpellier).

He received a World Press Photo (2nd prize single, daily life category) in February 2010 for his work on african middle classes. He realises also Cultural and Corporate assignements (Société Générale, Paris 2012, French Ministry of Youth and Sports, …).

Frustated by the simple succesion of  photo essays and after a 2 years preparation, he launched in 2008  the “Middle Classes in Africa” project which associates photography and research and study new waysto produce and broadcast photography
