Visage et corps: Salvador

Le Jardin (Duratrans/ light box) 
inspired by the Garden of Earthly Delights of Hieronymus Bosch

Can photography represent reality more fully than a painting? 
And what of dreams - which medium expresses them best? 
Steeped in the language of art that has come before him, Jean-Jacques Salvador's approach to photography is highly technical and modern yet converses fluently with the masters of old. His photography now secures the fleeting constructions of the human mind the way Bosch did with paint - and painstaking method.  Modern faces, modern bodies inhabit exploratory themes that have not finished to claim our attention.

Têtes antiques

In a visual grammar where the classics are not dead, beware, Medusa looks back at us.

  1. I don't think I've ever seen that Bosch painting up top!

    Both images are very "of the moment" with Halloween and Guy Fawkes only just over.
