Franck Bohbot

Piscine de la Butte aux Cailles Paris

About this photograph

Franck Bohbot has dedicated a major photographic series to Parisian swimming pools since 2012. From the Pontoise swimming pool to that of Amiraux or Butte-aux-Cailles, all three listed as historic monuments, his approach remains the same: to capture public places without people, in a systematic and frontal manner. Like the photographers of industrial installations, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Bohbot highlights the typology of the pools by showcasing their orderly arrangement and the architectural styles used, the lighting and colours of their interiors. His compositions are composed along a central perspective, revealing many vanishing points that give the photographs their great sense of depth. Franck Bohbot thus sheds light on a part of our heritage that is difficult to capture with the naked eye, since there are so many details to be discovered. The documenting of these details allows each of these swimming pools to be differentiated, rendering each one unique. These spaces where well-being and competitiveness often meet, constitute for many a primal and essential experience.

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.
