Born 1970 in Fréjus.
Lives and works in Paris and Barcelone.
Immediately after graduating from the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie, Arles, in 1996, Pernot began taking pictures of Romani populations and then focused on the themes of destruction, annihilation and displacement. At the crossroads of history, sociology and political analysis, he works in series, all successive expressions of analytical views on identity, memory, alienation and the notion of progress.
