Emerging collective of independent professional photographers, engaged in a documentary approach, seeking to combine independence and solidarity around issues, corporations, environmental issues, and man in his environment. Long-term reporting and narrative writing are key-words that characterize their work. Corporate activities are conducted in parallel, basically in the area of higher education and scientific research. The www.iris-collectif.com portal is a self-managed distribution platform to represent, distribute and promote their work (webmaster: firstname.lastname@example.org). The founding team of photographers consisting of Thierry Fournier, Eric Le Roux and Patricio Michelin, based respectively in Lyon, Paris and Barcelona, will be completed through encounters and affinities; a journalist will soon join the team.
