Current Exhibition : "FOTOSANDWICH"
Jean is a Frenchman who has been living in Denmark since 1990. With the birth of digital photography, he got Access to this creative tool he has been waiting for unconsciously for the creation of images. He has won since the beginning of his career a number of awards and contributed to several books on photography. Beside his interest for fine art, he consolidated his photography technique with a parallel work in the area of stock and protrait photography. The exhibition shows Jean's work with sandwiches, a very simple technique simulating film photography double or multiple exposures consisting in exposing different pictures on the same film. The digital world allows a flexibility and opportunities that were already available with film. Jean uses this technique to create images that are based on his own photos and that are at the same time simple in their geneses and complex in their appearance.
The way pictures are chosen and mixed is instinctive even though he has followed some rules. There is indeed a unity of time and place for the photography's used: as a general rule, pictures are taken at the same location and within a restricted period of time. This brings a harmony of colors and pattern in the serial proposed for this exhibition.
