From the cinema of the Author to the Cinema Gore through the Blockbuster Through film festivals, previews and press conferences filmmakers expose themselves and present themselves to professionals and spectators alike. They are there to talk about their work, their film and are willing to exercise the promotion of their Art. These images must stick to the actuality of the cinema, but sometimes it may be good to let them rest. The portraits of the series "2000" were realized between 1999 and 2003. These images are to this day totally exclusive and have Been published. An exhibition project is being prepared. A few years later the idea of ​​communicating with these filmmakers again made its way. One could mention their career, observe their physical and artistic changes and finally propose to them to project themselves again in the next 20 years. The first sale of this series is exceptional, each of the portraits is published to 30 copies including 3 Out of trade. The first 5 prints are available exclusively on Artphotolimited. The shots were taken with a Medium Format film camera. I chose a pigmented process printing to guarantee a maximum longevity of the prints and the particular grain of the film film naturally oriented me to the use of a textured paper. As for the Kostar Series, it corresponds to more recent commissioning work I have done in the editorial offices of the magazines "Kostar" and "Comme au Cinéma le Mag". The images are published with 30 copies including 3 Out of Business, 20 prints per portrait are available on the site. The photographs were taken digitally and I also decided to propose a pigmented process printing for a maximum longevity. For this series I preferred a paper of barite aspect, well adapted with the digital technology in color. These portraits are intended for movie enthusiasts, those who have been marked by a film, a character or a way of telling a story.
