Musée de l’Elysée and Parmigiani Fleurier Name Matthias Bruggmann Winner of the Prix Elysée

By Nicole Gabe

July 5, 2017

On June 24 in Lausanne, the Musée de l’Elysée and Parmigiani Fleurier hosted the event “Nuit des Images” and announced the winner of the Prix Elysée. Swiss photographer Matthias Bruggmann took home the prize, now in its second edition. Bruggmann, who was chosen by a jury from a group of eight nominees, said his work “attempts to bring to Western viewers, a visceral comprehension of the intangible violence that underlies conflict.”

Bruggmann’s has been documenting the conflict in Syria since 2012. Through his images, he asks, “If the tens of thousands of images of torture captured by Syrian photographers don’t get the attention of the Western public, what can a foreigner who doesn’t even speak Arabic achieve?”
