Ã‰ric Neveu was born in 1947 in Clermont-Ferrand. He owes his career and the discovery of his artistic talent to Daniel Filipacchi, the Honorary Chair of the biggest magazine publishing house in the world. Working alongside him as an assistant accountant, he was very soon entrusted with the direction of art books on Surrealism and American Photorealism. He moved to the United States in 1979 and took advantage of this expatriation to discover photography â€“ the initial theme of his photographs was cars. Erotic photographs followed in 1983 and the design of the magazine Newlook, which was to become the top erotic magazine in Europe from its fourth issue. After a 30-year career in the press, Ã‰ric Neveu chose to devote himself to his personal projects in 2000. These dealt with other themes such as aviation, cats, flowers and abstraction. His pictures were shown in 2010 at the MusÃ©e du Montparnasse in Paris, but also at the ChÃ¢teau de Bosc in the Aveyron in 2013.
