About the artwork

From a lion emitting a full-throated roar to the sly gaze of a rhinoceros threatened with extinction, the Creatures by Finnish photographer Antti Viitala present us with some of the most majestic portraits of wildlife today. The series, exclusively shot in black and white, divorces wild animals from their context in order to highlight their bestiality in its most pure form. Favouring the use of high-performance zooms, Anti Viitala manages to capture the minutest details of his subjects. He thus reveals stylised work in black and white presenting the patterns in the texture of the skin. Through simplified lighting, the spectator can hone in on the essential elements without the colour detracting from them, and thus discovers these animals from a new perspective. Whether it be their expressive eyes or aggressive jawlines, we marvel at the beauty and power of this threatened wildlife, which the photographer lovingly pays tribute to.

The artist

A child prodigy who tried his hand at photography from the age of 14, Finnish photographer Antti Viitala began his career in advertising and fashion before setting off to travel all over the globe. The photographer ponders the power of nature, from Iceland to South Africa. He only works in natural light, combining the techniques of the old masters with a perfect mastery of new technologies in order to capture the most subtle details, textures, and shades in his pictures.  ...

Alfredo Sanchez was not predestined for photography. Born in Mexico in 1954, he studied law and took up a career in the private sector. “My free time was spent playing tennis, horse riding, and let’s not forget my favourite pastime: photography,” he says. Much later, towards the ...

RUSLAN BOLGOV

Ruslan Bolgov was born in 1974 in Klaipeda, Lithuania, on the shores of the Baltic Sea. His earliest photographs were taken as a teenager, but he didn’t take the experience very far at the time. It wasn’t until the end of his studies in economics and finance that he seriously app...

CLAUDE DEGOUTTE

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
