Camera Work Opens Monochrome by Jean-Baptiste Huynh

. November 29, 2011 . 0 Comments

Camera Work presents “Monochrome” by Jean-Baptiste Huynh an exhibition on view from November 26 showing new photographs from the series “Monochrome” for the first time.

The photographs of the series »Monochrome«, created by Jean-Baptiste Huynh in 2010/11, are characterized by the strict and uncompromising reduction to the colour black. A spare but elaborate lighting supports this feature, so that the black objects and portraits appear in their deepest shades. The dominant black impressively embraces the colour meaning of sublime elegance and mysteriousness, as well as the complaining subtlety and elusiveness, which imposingly unfold in the photographs – a delightful interaction, encouraged by the compositional clearness, so that the recipient can experience the creation and its distinctiveness of the colour black.

Jean-Baptiste Huynh was born in France, as a son of a French mother and a Vietnamese father in 1966. So far, nine publications of his extensive photographic work of landscapes, portraits, nudes and still life have been released, all in sophisticated and high-quality design. Moreover, his photographs have been presented in numerous exhibitions, e.g. in the Moscow House of Photography and the European House of Photography in Paris. In 2012, photographs by Jean-Baptiste Huynh will be shown in the Louvre in Paris.
