Exhibition Opening of Exposed [À découvert] at Studio Galerie B&B during Mois de la Photo OFF 2017


Elise Prudhomme exhibits at Studio Galerie B&B during Mois de la Photo OFF 2017.

Exhibition Opening of Exposed [À découvert] Using a medium format film camera, I conceived, shot (using myself as a model) and hand-developed these photographs during travels in the United States, Italy and Switzerland from 1988 – 1991.  The silver-gelatin prints were made by myself in a traditional analog darkroom in 2014 – 2015.  You can see this series during the Mois de la Photo OFF (Photography Month OFF) from 28 March to 23 April at Studio Galerie B&B in Paris, France. Here are a few images of the exhibition and opening. Studio Galerie B&B 6 bis rue des Récollets – 75010 Paris info@studiogaleriebb.com

The photographer’s eye forges unceasing images of a paradise where recovering the voluptuousness of flight proper to creation is the greatest desire. – translated from the text by Patricia Bourcillier Exposed is the first part of a body of work that I began in the 80s on the exploration of self and the photographic medium. It is followed, in the 90s, by a more intimate series called Self-consciousness. Au milieu d’un jardin, de la forêt, perché sur la branche d’un arbre ou lové à l’ombre du feuillage, le corps nu, divinement animal, s’inscrit dans l’ordre de la nature. Mais y a-t-il sa place dans l’ordre du réel … Read More
