The artist

Born in Senlis in 1976, Ludwig Favre now lives and works in Paris. Art history, multimedia and audiovisual studies trained the photographer's eye, sensitive to the reproduction of picturesque landscapes. He has travelled widely, particularly between France and the United States. In New York, he allows himself to be surprised by the stunning infrastructure of the city and, whenever he gets the chance, reveals a vision oscillating between dynamism and serenity. Particularly attracted to life by the seaside, the photographer has also travelled off the Côte d’Argent. There, he photographed all the splendour of the seaside, lulled by the soft morning light and the gentle sound of waves.  ... See more See less

Lorsque j ai réalisé la série de photos sur La Piscine Molitor nous étions au mois de mai les conditions de prises de vues étaient relativement mauvaises car le soleil était déjà très haut et la piscine était utilisée par des clients.

LUDWIG FAVRE

About the artwork

Parisian swimming pools are the focus of a new photographic project by Ludwig Favre. After the United States and more specifically, New York, legendary sites to which he has devoted many images, the Frenchman is returning to his roots, focusing on the Parisian urban landscape. Built in 1929 by architect Lucien Pollet, the Molitor pool in the Art Deco style is one of the finest examples of architectural heritage in the 16th arrondissement. Once nicknamed "the white ocean liner", it marked Parisian life with its avant-gardist atmosphere and the appearance of the first bikini in 1946. Closed in 1989 when it was deemed too rundown, it only reopened in 2014, in the form of a luxury hotel. Today, the Molitor pool is listed as a historic monument of France. Capturing this site, strangely devoid of any human presence, Ludwig Favre adopts a frontal point of view and stresses the almost perfect symmetry of the architecture. The enigmatic atmosphere and highly stylised rendering evokes a cinematic world.
