Depicting fantastical versions of landscapes and iconic architecture is central to Rauzier's artistic exploration and mastery as a photographer. In this new body of work, Rauzier continues in his signature style combining iconic cities such as New York into compositions referencing art historical imagery. In addition, this show debuts a selection of special new works Rauzier has just completed on Cuban themes. In this series of 'Hyperphotos', he uses the stunning architectural and historical landscapes of Cuba, combined with his extensive knowledge of art and cultural history, literature, and humor, to create unique and unforgettable images.

Jean-Francois Rauzier is an internationally acclaimed photographer, who has exhibited in museums and art fairs throughout Europe, Asia, Russia and the US.

In 2002, when Jean-François Rauzier created his first ‘Hyperphoto', he was already an established photographer and had been searching for a new creative method. With his ‘Hyperphotos' he strives to capture “the panorama and the macro view all at once, to stop time and to have the possibility of viewing all the details of a static image”.

Rauzier's work transforms reality; it fascinates us with its scale and takes the viewer on a journey through the visible world. Rauzier uses thousands of high-resolution close-ups views and stitches them into his large compositions, maintaining the focus and sharpness of the smallest detail. Each work is carefully composed of elements and images he has collected over many years, working in some ways more like a painter than a photographer, creating his own supernatural man-made world. Using digital technology, he cuts, moves and constructs buildings, gardens, animals, and many other objects as he strives to transform the world according to his dreams, wishes, and anxieties, and to recreate the magic and secrecy of ancient legends and stories using 21st-century media.

The artist will be discussing his work on Friday, October 27th, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM.
