Frédéric Grimaud

By Mikhail Kachakhidze on November 23, 2007 11:57 Call for entries 0

I have always seen my surroundings with cameras. My great grandfather held a photography trade in Vence, my grandfather and my mother also did a lot of black and white. Autodidact, I seriously started photography in black and white and in color in 1997 during my biology studies. At first I was especially focused on landscapes and abstract. Later on I undertook works on the current musics in overprinting since 1997 ( no digital enhancement, overprintings carried out in slides during the shooting) which I still continue today. Currently I am interested in the man, his condition and those we forget. I find myself a lot more in documentaries, working on the ground, rather than in the studio. I consider esthetism with great importance ! These precise moments where the “painting” seems still for eternity are unique moments to which I savour the existence. I have always wanted to keep traces, souvenirs. I do not seek to limit myself and work on all the themes that touch me: Landscape, portraits, concerts, dance et shows in general, macrography, abstract, travels, textures, glances, wastelands, movements… make up my universe. It is my way of progressing. My goal being to carry out documentaries for magazines and agencies. http://marici.free.fr Events : . Next exhibition: During 2008 in the Kernotart gallery in the 15th district, on the industrial wasteland theme in concordance with the book “La Mauvaise Herbe Urbaine” .
