Franck Bohbot

The Corner Deli, NYC

About this photograph

This photograph comes from the "Light On" series produced between 2013 and 2014 in New York. The artist captured the lights and colours that illuminate the nocturnal cityscape of the city that never sleeps, thanks to the lighting from the myriad storefronts of delis and restaurants. While they continue with their activities, they gradually become devoid of people as the night goes on, thus giving way to a "second life", a calmer and more laidback atmosphere. Like the photographs of Robert Frank, particularly those of Detroit and New York, Franck Bohbot succeeds in revealing another side to America. His various views, each taken with a long exposure time, give a highly contrasted and dynamic effect to the compositions, which highlight the various kinds of architecture he encounters. They also confer a deliberately cinematographic character to his shots, bearing witness to the photographer's fascination for architecture and its importance in films. He readily cites Nan Goldin, calling her photographs the "remains of non-existent films".

The artist
Franck Bohbot

Franck Bohbot is a french photographer and visual artist best know for his use of color photography. He focuses his artistic research on public spaces, urban landscapes and environmental portraits. Rooted in his fascination with cinematographic iconography, his thematics study the relationship between the individual and architecture. He has drawn artistic inspiration from figures as diverse as Luigi Ghirri, Walker Evans, Edward Hopper, or William Eggleston. While manipulating color with great precision, he highlights the soft subtleties of this relationship by playing with both fluorescent and melancholic light and chromatics. Each one of Bohbot’s works features these photographic intentions — through their enigmatic atmosphere, documentary-style approach, and timeless feel, we are transported to a dreamy, velvety, and nearly infinite visual paradise. His unique style enabled him to work with prestigious magazines, institutions and designers such as the New York Times, The New York Magazine, National Geographic, The Louvre Museum, Sotheby’s, Paul Smith and Christian Dior. He works and lives in New York City.
