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

The next meeting at the Anticafé will be held on Thursday, August 24, at 19:30
The impact of social media and the myth of Beauty

Our discussion will be focused on the influence of photography in the modern society, based on the books of sociologist Jean-François Amadieu, “The Tyranny of the Beauty” and “The weight of the appearances”.
This discussion will be inspired by the obsession of being seen, as perceived in the social media. Of course, we will not be satisfied with a theoretical discussion. We will apply these standards to examples drawn from the social media. In the form of a laboratory, we will try to develop an index of notoriety of a photo on social media. We will seek to identify and weigh the subjective and objectives criteria which contribute to provide notoriety to a photo. From there, we may be able to discuss the myth of Beauty.

 

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.
