Jacques Revon, L’instant photographique similitude ou différence

For almost forty-five years, over time, I have been observing, a photographic approach of patience, research and essentially selective in my various reports. This work began in 1971.

With this in mind, I realized a little more than a hundred images. Certainly, you can imagine, it is a very long process but I pursue it.

My photographs are the result of a very short lived moment, but the decisive trigger was preceded by many observations, even expectations, surprises and even unexpected attitudes from the actors of a moment.

These unique moments were first captured on black and white film as in this selection, then during technological evolutions on color film, in slides and now in digital.

The photographs I have chosen here have been captured only in black and white film, they reflect different instants of similarity, but also differences in what we call a snapshot.
