Photographer of being, of things and of places
In his photographic practice, Grégoire Édouard’s main concern is questions relating to the place of man within the biosphere. His photographic practice is guided by numerous steps, and tries to restore the links that bind us to beings, things and places. It is born in the meeting of the ordinary and tries to celebrate its presence. Fragmented, without artifice, the writing draws its strength from the sensoriality combined with the experience of the outside as a movement from the inside to the outside (and vice versa). His approach requires time, a time to fully live the artistic experience and free from everything superfluous, it lies in the accomplishment of a practice: immersive stays, daily walks, the simplification of his work tools and the quest for greater freedom to act. In his latest work Bruissement, he attempts to deconstruct the dichotomy between nature and culture, by offering a multiple, sensory and living approach, which reweaves relationships between humans and the rest of life.
