The origin of ‘White Card’: ‘Carton Blanc’

‘White Card’ takes its name from ‘Carton Blanc’, a highly-acclaimed travelling photo exhibition by Maud Bernos which highlights the faces of those who are at the very heart of Peace and Sport’s action and who are its tireless driving force: children.

The photographer named her exhibition ‘Carton Blanc‘ in reference to the red card, which signifies the most serious offense that a sports player can commit. Here, the colour white, which symbolizes purity and peace, is therefore used to represent positivity and constructiveness in sport.

maud sml“It’s a pleasure to be part of this initiative with Peace and Sport! 6 April is a unique opportunity to show that there is real mobilization around this day and that the peace through sport movement is alive and kicking! Photographs can convey important messages, and whether they are photos from my exhibition Carton Blanc or photos posted on Facebook or Twitter from people all over the world, the message is the same and I wholeheartedly support it. I encourage everyone taking part in this initiative. Play your Peace on April6! ”

Maud Bernos, photographer.
