PresentationThe nearly 30 years I’ve spent photographing performing artists have nourished and reinforced my fascination for the elements of an image – line, shape, movement … - and for their interactions.
During the 90’s in parallel with my more commercial shooting I began doing some personal creative work using traditional black and white laboratory techniques to transform my photos ( techniques which I had explored in the 70’s and re-used for several poster assignments for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1991).
At first I “distilled” my photos down to their essential lines and shapes. Later I used images obtained by these means to create more or less abstract designs through multiplication and assembly. As of 2001 I adapted these techniques to digital image manipulation so as to integrate color into my work and take it much further in complexity.
The images I’m creating today are “digital collages” wherein my transformed photos are superimposed so that they can interact and even interfere with one another.
The lines and shapes of the human body in the photos I take for this work (essentially nudes and dance photos) are steeped in strength and emotion which manifest themselves whatever the transformations I impose on them. They also have a way of stimulating the composition of complex and sensual images.
