Samuel Hoppe

Samuel Hoppe

C’est dans la proximité des ballons des Vosges et la neige abondante de son enfance que l’on trouve l’origine de la fascination de Samuel Hoppe pour la montagne. Le plaisir de la marche vient aussi de cette époque ainsi que la photographie qui l’accompagne depuis sa première image, prise à l’âge de 9 ans au col du grand Saint-Bernard en Suisse. La marche et l’attirance de l’altitude l’amènent à s’approcher au plus près des roches dénudées, des étendues de neiges et des glaciers. Il photographie la minéralité, l’effacement de la végétation, l’ordonnancement de la nature et la solitude aussi agréable que nécessaire pour être au plus proche de la zone supérieure, cette zone où la végétation ne pousse plus. Après des études de sémantique Samuel Hoppe est devenu libraire, il a ouvert VOLUME à Paris tout en développant une pratique de photographe.

Chantal Stoman

Chantal Stoman

Chantal Stoman est une photographe française qui vit et travaille à Paris. Son travail s’inscrit dans une démarche qui repose sur une observation approfondie des rapports entre l’Homme, son intimité, et la Ville. Débuté avec A WOMAN’S OBSESSION, observation de la relation particulière que les femmes japonaises entretiennent avec le luxe et la mode, elle élargit ensuite sa focale avec LOST HIGHWAY, A PHOTO PROJECT. Réalisé sur les flyovers des grandes villes du monde c’est un voyage sensoriel dans l’intimité furtive de l’humanité qui se cache au coeur des grandes villes. Le travail que Chantal Stoman a ensuite réalisé à Rome puis à Jérusalem, avec ses projets L’IMAGE CULTE et WALKING DISTANCE témoigne de son tropisme vers les «villes mythes». Dernièrement, une invitation en résidence au Cambodge lui a permis de reprendre sa déambulation en se plongeant dans l’intimité de Phnom Penh, une ville dont elle ignorait tout..."

Yann Audic

Yann Audic

Yann is a real esthete. His images show a 360° visual culture, his visual language goes hand in hand with his open-mindedness, as well as his textual language, that proves a true knowledge of books. Yann seems like he’s a typical Parisian but it would be a huge mistake to stop at that aspect of his person, that wonderfully covers his tracks. Yann comes from Brittany, was adopted by Paris, and is married to an adorable Japanese woman. He takes pictures of people, architecture, landscapes, and he’s the co-editor of JeanMarie magazine. With his perfect command of photographical techniques, he works with a film camera for his personal work, and for all the images brought back from Japan for this book.

Frankie & Nikki

Frankie & Nikki know how to catch the essence of what’s around them. The singularity of their framing reveals the universal, and even the extraordinary of ordinary subjects.

For us, they unveil places and portraits sometimes rejected for their banality. The reality they show us is the one we don’t usually care about. It’s a scoop of ice cream on the sidewalk, an abandoned swimming pool, a funny looking pink building.

Frankie and Nikki are storytellers, the stories that make life, that keep us alive, and that demonstrate their time.

This girl is Frankie. She started out capturing the faces of guests on a radio show. A film camera later, she runs into the guy below who takes her to his visual madness and hires her for a million dollars.

This guy is Nikki. After trying on the boards, he goes through the script, framing, editing, directing and photographing phases. A film camera later, he runs into the girl above, who takes him to her visual madness and hires him for a million dollars.

This pair shows us their souvenirs, their fantasies, and what beauty looks like to them.

Jean-Christophe Polien

Jean-Christophe Polien's landscape photography has a timeless quality. His fascination for neglected and abandoned places questions our relationships with nature and man-made constructions.

His images are charged with emotion transporting us into his imaginary world, his own internal puzzle.

As a photographer, Jean-Christophe Polien nurtures simplicity. His regular contributions in the press (Le Monde, l’Humanité, The Times, Rolling Stone, Rock & Folk, Jalouse…) and his portraits of musicians, writers and unidentified subjects gazing openly at the camera reveal the many different facets of his work.
