Taunus Foto Galerie presents the exhibition “Evanescence” by Jean-Michel Lenoir.
A passion for nature from an early age led Jean-Michel Lenoir to photography, to capture the magical moments of beautiful, pristine nature and wildlife.
Landscape photography is his quest for atmosphere, where light and beauty are key references, his aesthetic landmarks. Jean-Michel relies on his love of open spaces, combined with his quest for beautiful light. He searches for simplicity; images that go to the core, with few objects in the frame. He loves minimalism and simple landscapes. Snow, ice & mist have been his guides for many years.
Jean-Michel has a suggestive approach: “I don’t try to show a subject as it is, but to share what it expresses. It’s my way of telling stories and conveying my sensitivity, like my recent book, Evanescence”.
Images of fleeting nature; snow showers blur tree lines, mist rises above a pond, wave breaks over a rock, water runs under a frozen river, the silhouette of an animal fades to blend with the white.
Combining his passion for pictures with rugged landscapes, Jean-Michel also organizes and guides photo tours and workshops. From northern Europe (Finland, France, Norway, Scotland, Sweden) to South America (Bolivia, Peru), photography takes him to wilderness areas, his main source of inspiration.
Jean-Michel has won prizes from the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year and GDT (Gesellschaft für Naturfotografie) photography competitions, is published regularly in magazines, leads photography tours with Photographes du Monde, and is an ambassador for Fujifilm (mostly using a medium format GFX camera) and Cokin. He much prefers to capture images in camera, rather than spending time at a computer screen.
