sylvain granjon photographie

"I was in the circus … until the accident".

That is a reasonable version of how Sylvain Granjon replied to my "tell me about yourself" question last summer in Arles.

My heart soared with the prospect of pictures made by someone who has been communicating to a very different - non-photographic - audience; there was the possibility of magic.

I want to make special mention of my encounter with him, whose reminded me that it's delight that is at the heart of photography, and that is what engages me."

W.M HUNT Halsted and Hunt (New York) Gallery Director, collector and author of "The Invisible Eye" (Actes Sud)



"While taking varied forms, my work is indeed crossed by lines of force and obsessions: creative immersion in an imaginary universe, the complexity of our relationship to time, memory and childhood, self-representation and self-portraits. Humor and self-deprecation are an integral part of my artistic approach.
Very attached to a form of photographic craft, I almost exclusively uses photo-montage techniques, gluing, cutting and hand coloring"

Born in 1971, Sylvain pursues the exploration of his fetishes after a first life as an actor and a circus artist. He is regularly exhibited in Europe (Spain, Norway, Serbia, France, Portugal, Belgium, Switzerland) and participates in numerous festivals (Rencontres d’Arles, Fotofever, Photo Off, Festival Circulations, Le Voyage à Nantes, Encuentro de Imagen, Madrid Photo ...) He works and lives in Paris.
