About

What is Fiiiirst?

For those who don’t know, Fiiiirst is an online gallery showcasing anonymous discussions between authors photographers. Every month, two photographers are invited to interact through an image-based discussion. To keep this dialog without a pre-formated vision, the identities of each author are kept secret until the end of their respective discussion. Each picture produced is used as an inspiration to create the next one.

Since 2016, 80 photographers from 29 different countries have participated into this project and all discussions are available on our website www.fiiiirst.com

Fiiiirst Volume 1

Through the website, everyone can enjoy and discover emerging photographers through their image-based conversation. We decided to push this project further by producing every two editions a photo book that includes a wide selection of images of the different discussions made during these two years (2016-2018).

These are presented differently from the website to provide a new reading of these photographic exchanges and to to pay homage to the quality of the photographs.
