Jean-François Chavanne


Jean-François Chavanne with his very personal and photographic aesthetic renews our idea of vision through a visual refining both hieratic and contemporary.

The object we’re looking at becomes eerie and enchanting, intimate and mysterious, deep and sensual.

His taste for the core of things is served by the strictness of a wide technical mastery, as well as, like a painter, his perfect knowledge of lightning.

Restraint and refined lines, almost minimal, elegance and timelessness of the colours slightly soften reveal an extraordinary fineness and subtility of textures.

He excels in enhancing without betraying, giving us a poetic dimension.

Let it be a cabbage, a still life, a landscape or a portrait, it always is the strength of one’s eye thinking before showing.
