Winner of this year's Photo d'Hôtel, Photo d'Auteur, now in its fifth year, went to Elene Usdi. Usdi graduated from the l'Écoledes Arts Décoratifs de Paris en 1996 and turned little by little towards photography in the early 2000's engaging in a series of self portraits. To better understand her environments she disguised herself seeking personalities that emerged from the spaces around her. This approach to working was put to work with great affect and this year won her the Photo d'Hôtel, Photo d'Auteur first prize.

Each month of the past year young artists were invited to spend an evening in one of the Hôtels Paris Rive Gauche to create a unique work inspired by their visit. Artists are granted access to guest rooms and halls for one month to execute works that will become their submission. The range of images is stunning, each voice comes through clear and strong and all are worthy of attention.

With notable judges like Guillaume Morel, connaissance des arts; Marc Pussemier from La Librairie photographique; Paul-Louis Roubert from la Société Française de Photographie; and Esther Woerdehoff, Galelrist, the honor of being chosen is of high compliment.
