The artist

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.  ... See more See less

Architecture is everywhere, in every city, from megalopolises to the tiniest of villages, I photograph architecture because I am passionate about the act of documenting buildings, interiors, and the soul of a neighbourhood with my eyes.

About the artwork

While Bernd and Hilla Becher, the initiators of German objective photography, dedicate their work to the frontal photography of industrial installations, French photographer Franck Bohbot experiments with an equally exacting protocol that enables him to draw up an inventory of cultural sites. The systematic frontal and centred views of his subjects offer a documentary dimension based on typologies. It is precisely this systematism and the notion of the overview that confers an artistic and majestic dimension to the photographer's works. Belonging to the "House of Books" series that the photographer began in 2011, this image represents the oval room of the Richelieu site of the Biblioth?que Nationale de France, inaugurated in 1936. Franck Bohbot thus distances himself from cold architectural photography, offering us instead these wonderful representations of sites of memory, knowledge, and education. On the borders between the monumental and the intimate, books have replaced humans as the main protagonists of his supernatural images, resembling spacecraft.
