Human Gaze by Jean-Baptiste Huynh


Jean-Baptiste Huynh was born in Châteauroux in 1966, of a French mother and a Vietnamese father. As an autodidact, he taught himself photographic, lighting and printing techniques, which he mastered to the point of developing a pure and personal style. The individuality of his photography is recognizable in a large body of work that includes portraits, nudes and still-life projects and is well in evidence in his most recent series: Mirrors, Fire and Twilights. Huynh’s thematic preoccupations include the face — and the human gaze in particular — the play of light, the sense of timelessness, and the attempt to capture infinity. Huynh considers the staging of his installations — their scenography — along with the conception of his books, as integral parts of his artistic vision.
