Guillaume Geneste is the creator of the La Chambre Noire laboratory in Paris. One of the last film printer in France and the traveling companion of many photographers… In this book, he gives us his thoughts on the work of a printer, on the relationships he has with the artist photographer, on the future of this profession. Reflections, anecdotes and interviews with big names in international photography (Ralph Gibson, Duane Michals, Sid Kaplan or Howard Greenberg…), as well as French photographers of all generations (Arnaud Claass, Gabrielle Duplantier, Valérie Belin, Jo Terrien…), take us behind the scenes of the shooting profession.
The opportunity to re-cross the path and the photographs of Jean Gaumy, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Klavdij Sluban, Denis Roche, Bernard Plossu, Henri Cartier Bresson, Martine Franck, Pierre de Fenoÿl, Sabine Weiss, Anne-Lise Broyer and many others …
An unprecedented book, neither technical nor theoretical, but a book of passion and emotion that will be a reference on the subject.
