Founder and CEO of Editions BESSARD
Pierre Bessard has lived several lives across France, China and Korea.
He worked as a reporter at AFP, Head of Photography at VSD magazine, a documentary producer at CAPA/ARTE, a photo journalist at REA news agency and received numerous grants and awards, including Villa Médicis hors les murs.
Bessard is certainly passionate about photo images, but he is equally passionate about photography books; always searching for the highest level of sophistication, he works relentlessly on his cutting-edge publications.
At Editions Bessard Pierre seeks to share his vision of a photography book as a work of art in its own right. Symbolically, his catalogue was inaugurated by Max Pam. Each book is a unique experience for Pierre. As such, his goal at Edition Bessard is to produce future classics.
