Tribe by Gautier

TRIBE, is the ambitious challenge launched by GAUTIER to build its worldwide tribe, representing 5 million young people who sleep or have slept in a bedroom created by this French manufacturer! Working in conjunction with John Thackwray, a French photographer of South African origin, GAUTIER has travelled all over the world to meet and photograph children.

TRIBE BY GAUTIER exhibition proposes to everyone to discover their portraits and their universes, their everyday lives, personalities, culture, hopes and dreams via one single location: their bedroom.
GAUTIER wanted to share this unique journey with as many people as possible via this site as well as with this exhibition and with a dedicate website

These 26 portraits to discover during this exhibition aim to blur the boundaries between art and documentary, creating an unusual testimony of today’s young generation and the world they live in, as remember John Thackwray “these photos will become a valuable record for anyone interested in how we used to live”.

This unique, colourful and mindful concept that’s bursting with positivity enables us to look at who we are, what we want to reveal and what we prefer to hide away, as well as exploring the variety of habitats and cultural differences that make up our planet.
