Discovered: Jean-François Lepage
Monday, 5 January 2015
Today i'd like to show you a photographer i discovered, called Jean-François Lepage. He's a french artist who has spent his career darting between painting and photography. After he has done a shoot (fun fact: everything but the location is improvised) compass points, a cutter to cut and a stapler to join the pieces are used. The post-production part of Lepage's work process becomes a second period of creation, which is rather tricky of course. Jean-François about this: "It can be risky and that's what like about it: tampering with an image that is considered finished when shot to purposefully reconstruct it, with the permanent risk of destroying it altogether." Genius if you ask me.
