The Lomographer at Work: Welcome to My Studio

I wanted to present my work and where I realize my ideas. After leaving my job teaching art, I decided to devote myself to the evolution of my personal work. That's why I converted part of my home into an art studio.

When we visited this house arriving at Lille, we were surprised by this great renovation of the garage from floor to ceiling. We were looking for a place to live but also where it would be possible to create a studio and work with unlimited space constraints.

This is where I work, an old but bright garage that allows me to draw, paint, make photos, and get my projects done. I realized that I was producing less and that was the motivation for this change.

Almost two years ago, I dedicated myself to my photographic work. But recently, I found the desire to incorporate drawings in photographs. As this project progresses, it requires me to do a lot of documentation and testing.

For this new project, I thought that the best solution was to work with image projections so I can draw in large format. To develop this new work by hand, I derive it from photos.

I wanted to share with you this work and the creative passion that has governed my life for 33 years. An artist’s work requires a lot of investment and research before potentially selling or exhibiting anything. That is why at the moment, I continue my research and try to make myself more professional.

    Wonderful, inspiring article!! Please up date frequently. Regarding large format, I note that Belairgon lenses have at least a 12cm image circle. Lomography NEEDS to build large box cameras fitting Belairgon lenses with the Lubitel shutter in behind the lens position and resurrect Kodak's old 125 roll film size for 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" negatives. Modern films are thinner and more stable than early 20th century celluloid, so I think they fit 12 exposures rather than 8 with the backing paper on 125 size spools. Lomography could take over in the low end of fine art photo market!! Nag LSI unmercifully!!

    not only for artists but for all of us human beings passion is one of the most fulfilling drives.Go on and keep us informed. P.S. Ignore that passion also causes a lot of pain, - better to pay tbe price then to cut that one out.

    Great studio, interesting work. I'm sure you find what I do, that people love your work, but don't buy it. Hard to be an artist, but keep it up anyway!
