Jean-François CANTREL: Camera’s Faces

Jean-François CANTREL: Camera’s Faces


This series is inspired by black and white photographs found in family albums from the fifties and sixties: anonymous portraits taken by my father during his travels. So here are my own strangers, now capturing the photographer, or the viewer. All unified by cameras that have made History. The capture’s instant, the click, is materialised by the movement of the blown hair, as those portraits could blow your own mind. Smile, they may get you!

Jean-François CANTREL – originally, photographer specialised in the domains of the architecture and the design, he dedicate himself since 2013 to an author work, more personal and original. He also teach in Parisian schools of Art. These last four years, he had the pleasure to expose his work in France: in Paris, in Vichy, and in Saint-Tropez.

‘Camera’s Faces’ was the Black & White Portrait Series of the Year 2017 Winner in the MonoVisions Photography Awards.
