Clément Chapillon is a french documentary photographer focus on the link between the land and the people. His passion for photography started when his father gave him the first film camera at 17 years old. Then, he shaped his eye and built a personal approach based on human perspective during several travelings, especially a one year trip to meet local communities in Asia, Melanesia and South America. In 2016 he quit his job in a communication agency to focus on photography and to work on new personal projects. He made the Gobelins school program and he started a documentary work on Israel and Palestine during several long term trips to the middle-east. This work called “Promise Me a Land” was published in media & newspaper (Le monde, Arte, L’OBS,...), was exhibited in several festivals (Voies-Off Arles, Circulations, Tbilissi…) and won the Leica Prize in 2017 in Arles who allowed him to make a solo show in Leica Galery in Paris in april 2018.
