Yves Jeanmougin began his career as a photographer for the Viva agency in 1973.
His work centres mainly around human stories : the Inuits of Canada, the French underclass, child workers in Naples, communities in Marseille, Le Corbusier's Cité radieuse, remembrance sites in Algeria, the cities of Casablanca and Algiers, the Milles internment and deportation camp.
The photographer's workshop is a productive, creative place directly linked to Métamorphoses where Yves Jeanmougin designs and produces books and organises exhibitions which represent the fruits of his labours and draw on a number of different disciplines (photography, literature, history, architecture, fine art, live performance, soundscapes) with projects based on Mediterranean culture which promote cultural exchange and dialogue including : Carcérales, pages et images de prison [writing and images of prison] ; Déliés, une descendance algérienne [an Algerian background] ; Algériens, frères de sang – Jean Sénac, lieux de mémoire [Déliés,; Algerians, blood brothers – Jean Sénac, remembrance sites] ; Casablanca ; Mémoire du camp des Milles 1939-1942 [Casablanca ; Memories of the Milles camp 1939-1942].
