ALAIN CORNU

Well versed at working on landscapes, Alain Cornu knows how to turn his subjects into fascinating objects. His previous series alternately depict trees, standing stones, misty fields, windows, walls, doors and streets. This time, zinc roofs, gables and chimneys, bathed in soft light, take on a new dimension and become an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Although photography became his favourite means of expression since he graduated from the Ecole des Gobelins - French National School of Applied Arts, Print and Digital Media-, the delicacy of his compositions clearly reveals his first passion for drawing and painting. Alongside the still-life projects, portraits and commissioned works he does in studio, Alain Cornu also lingers outside on landscape series, making large format images.
