GUY MONNET, 2019

" J’ai laissé s’exprimer la texture des corps et la matière des lieux, la lumière comme un révélateur de l’âme des êtres, des lieux. Des instants cueillis, des bribes de l’éternité de ce quotidien. Ces femmes m’ont fait le don de s’ex- poser."

"I let the bodies’ texture and the location’s material express themselves, the light as the revelator of the souls of the beings and places. Chosen moments, fragments of this diary’s eternity. These women have given me the gift to express myself."

Guy Monnet

GUY MONNET, 1956

Born in 1956, Guy Monnet is an author and photographer, creator of the “revelation through image” collective.
He lives in Lubéron.
After an initial approach to images through drawing, he takes his first photographs at age 17 and discovers that reality can be interpreted in a way which is different than it appears at first. It’s not the world which shapes our eyes, but our feelings that shape our perception of the world.
This revelation truly pushes him toward photography.
He studies photography at the school of Fine Arts for three years, where he learns and develops practice and analysis of the image.
After a few years as a field photographer specializing in mountains, he decides to live photography in another way, reinterpreting the day to day and starting to travel.
For Monnet, photography becomes a way to resonate, to search for something beyond the world’s opacity, to break through the surface. The vision, the gaze, appears in that moment suspended between inhalation and exhalation.
Along his work as a photographer, Guy Monnet became a Tai-chi-chuan master. The practice of this martial art has joined his axis of photographic research: highlight the spiritual at the heart of daily life, conceiving photography as a way to expand his field of vision, find the rare in the habitual, thus establishing a fracture in reasoning.
For Guy Monnet, a successful photograph should invite us to be in that which we face, to see what our presence seeks, to induce a form of gratitude before the sheer flow of life. It should be able to help us to find something that can’t be found anywhere else: an invitation to listen to the silence.
