Welcome

Collaborative platform to promote photography as an act of artistic expression and an expression of its artists, for photographers who share their passion for creation.

My main area of photographic production is in the creation of artistic male portraits in the studio. These images are an excerpt and offer an enhanced vision of the reality. They allow the exploration of strong expressions, of symbolic visions which give a unique dimension to each photo. I mainly work with dancers and actors who are comfortable with the visual search process.

A creator must integrate the social message of his work to his vision. Art does not exist without communicating a vision and values that influence the evolution of our society. The artist is an agent of change for our society.

Activities to come

Our next meeting at  l’Anticafé will be Thursday, May 4 19:30

Herb Ritts, VercaceHerb Ritts, Photographer of the human landscape.

Ritts revolutionized fashion photography, modernized nudity and transformed stars into unavoidable icons. He developed a distinctive style that offers a balance between his commercial production and artistic creation. Ritts has worked with iconic models of his time, including Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

 

 

 

 

Following our discussion on beauty in photography, you are invited to contribute a pair of Venus and Adonis of your own, to present to the group. Our goal is to apply the concepts of aesthetic beauty of ancient Greece to modern photographic production. Our reference guide is the author Umberto Eco, “History of the Beauty” which describes the representation of the beauty of the human body through the centuries.
