The artists and photographers I have decided to represent are creative personalities whose sensibility reaches out to myself. Their outlook on nature and human being is very appealing to me.
“Clergue’ photographs are from God’s own sketchbooks” once said Picasso. Lucien Clergue’s world is haunted by Eros and Thanatos, a world in wich life and death are ever holding arms and frolicking. From the dead animals abandoned by the Rhone river to the gypsies and naked bodies in the sea, from the dead bulls to the sands of the Camargue, Clergue reveals a world of signs that we are often unable to distinguish by ourselves. He opens the door of an imaginary world which only belongs to himself. Attentive to the unseen, he makes it sensible and visible. His last works, the double exposures– strictly without any use of digital work - surprises us thank to magic coming out from his genius.
