Gérard Rancinan is a French photographer with a highly successful career spanning nearly 50 years. His very large-scale and meticulous studio portraits and live scenes provide a sharp, tender, and highly personal commentary on our world. His work – often produced with his long-term collaborator Caroline Gaudriault – is exhibited in galleries and installations worldwide, published in high quality books, and sold to public and private art collections.

The talk will present images from the book “The Photographer”, portraits from his early career, allegories of our modern world from his recent exhibitions, and a fly-on-the-wall look at the creation of two of his most iconic photographs.
