(Jean GENET) Marc TRIVIER Jean Genet - Louis Diaz. Photographies Originales Par l'auteur, S.l. 1985, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. A pair of original black and white photographic portraits taken and printed by Marc Trivier. The two photographs are, respectively : - An original photograph of Jean Genet taken in Rabat en 1985, probably one of the last portraits of the writer, who died the 14th of april 1986. - An original photographic portrait of Louis Diaz, committed to psychiatric hospital, taken in Liège in 1984. Artists, strangers, madmen, abbatoirs, trees - Marc Trivier photographed each of his subjects with the same interrogative intensity. Toutes réalisées dans le même format carré, élémentaire and clos, sans retouche ni recadrage, and seem less to show off a subject - famous or unknown, in or out of power, dead or alive - than to seek out a presence. "What interested me was not simply photographing a body or a face, but the curious situation of someone taking a photo of someone else." In placing his portraits of artists side by side with a divergent pair, Trivier denudes the work of its effect and reveals the enigmatic nakedness of the photographic body. "In his cosmogony every thing, every being - vegetable, mineral or human - deserves the same respect. "In his cosmogony every thing, every being - vegetable, mineral or human - deserves the same respect. For all are subject to the same iron law: solitude" (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011, on the occasion of Marc Trivier's retrospective at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Unsigned silver prints, like most of Trivier's work. Unique proofs printed by the artist. Tiny tear to foot of the photograph of the abattoir and small traces of fold, not serious, in the margins. An exceedingly rare diptych by one of the great contemporary photographers. 3 000 € Réf : 35333 Order

Paul Blanca (1954/1958-) - ''James Brown 1986''
James Brown 1986 - Silver gelatin print - hand signedSigned: Yes, bottom right image with black marker Technique: gelatin silver print Dimensions: 18 x 25 cm photo 22 x 32 cm (framed) In good condition.Paul Blanca (1954/58), official name Paul Vlaswinkel, is a Dutch art photographer who had a breakthrough in the early 80s of the last century with his confrontational violent self-portraits influenced by the great American photographers Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) and Andres Serrano (1950).The self-taught Blanca came into touch with the artscene when he met Eva Veldhoen, the daughter of the well-known Dutch painter Aat Veldhoen (1934). The acquaintance with this artistic environment was a real eye-opener for Blanca and shortly after he started photographing, first in color with a small screen camera but very soon after shooting in B&W using a Hasselblad camera (6 X 6 cm).
