I was fortunate enough to have met both Pierre and Alexandra Boulat. I have been even more fortunate to have seen their images. In their memory and to continue the great photographic work of this amazing family, I am proud to announce the creation of : The Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Association and Grant and the Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Association.
Formed in the memory of Pierre and Alexandra Boulat by friends and family after the death of Alexandra Boulat in 2007, the Association seeks to keep the spirit of father and daughter alive through making their work available to the public and creating an annual grant for a photographer and sponsoring the education of young photographers.

The Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Grant:
We will award a Grant to a photographer to produce a story that must be told but that the photographer cannot find support for from within the Media.
The first Grant will be awarded at Visa pour LImage in Perpignan 2008, as it was an event very close to the hearts of Alexandra and Pierre Boulat.
The photographer should submit, no later than July 1st each calendar year, a one page proposal with a portfolio of 20 pictures to prove competency. A first committee will make a pre-selection in Paris and the final decision will be made in Perpignan with a jury of 7 or 9 people chosen among the most important photo editors at Visa pour Limage.
