For his first participation at Paris Photo, Galerie Lelong Paris is pleased to present a solo show of recent photographs of Jean-Baptiste Huynh exploring the double theme of nudes and plants from France and Vietnam. Jean-Baptiste Huynh was born in Châteauroux in 1966, of a French mother and a Vietnamese father. As an autodidact, he taught himself lighting and printing techniques which he mastered to the point of developing a pure and personal style. The individuality of his photography is recognizable in a large body of work that includes portraits, nudes and still life and is well in evidence in his most recent series: Mirrors, Fire and Twilight. The Villa Médicis Prize and the Kodak Prize stand among his several awards. In 2006, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris devoted a retrospective to Jean-Baptiste Huynh. In 2012, the Louvre invited Huynh to show a collection of his most recent photographs inspired by objects in the Museum’s collection, along with the book Lumière. In Spring 2016, Galerie Lelong will present an exhibition of new works of Jean-Baptiste Huynh.
