Before immersing into photography, Etienne Boisrond spent a good many years in advertising, much around the globe.That led him to work with some of the most reknowned signatures in the industry, such as Annie Leibovitz, Ridley Scott, Jean-Paul Goude, among others…He has kept a fascination for the imaginary power of photographs, and their capacity to portray the world differently.
He first investigated documentary photography, on various series, in the footsteps of a Depardon. Among others, he spent two years photographing the entire population of a village in Correze,which led him to his first solo show, with the 400 portraits he had done.
Since then, Etienne Works on a more pared-down, sketched, almost symbolic photography . A frugal photography in a way, perhaps the influence of his years spent in Japan. Suggest, rather show. A fugitive impact, a trace, like a remanence in your eye. Say more by showing less. Reminiscent of some architecture sketches, three lines, and it’s all there…
