BigNews.Biz - Jul 02,2012 - (May 2012) With a dedicated Art Concierge – the first in Paris – a first-rate art collection, an art bookstore, La Librarie des Arts and its own gallery, Art District - Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris is firmly established as a part of the cultural and artistic landscape of the capital and also as one of the luxury hotels Paris with elegant architecture. A favourite haunt of artists and intellectuals, our luxury hotel Paris
is infused with artistic flair.
From 22 June, Art District will exhibit the work of French photographer Jean-Francois Rauzier, in an exhibition entitled “Hyper Photos”.
In his monumental works, Jean-François Rauzier takes the viewer beyond the limits of the real world with his own invention and our , the hyperphoto. Each virtual image is a gigantic puzzle comprised of several hundreds of shots, taken with a telephoto lens and assembled by computer.
He explains: “Hyperphotos are like a long-forgotten dream come to life. The images are assembled numerically, to create an image so detailed and fascinating - yet at the same massive in scale and never-ending. Just like a dream.”
His works immerse the spectator into a dreamlike, sometimes fantastic universe. They offer a reflection on reality, the place of man in the city, the perception of the world and an invitation to a fascinating journey.
Jean-François Rauzier was born in 1952. Since graduating from the Ecole Louis Lumière he has worked as a professional photographer. In 2002 he developed the idea of the hyperphoto. Over the past few years, Rauzier has received the recognition of his peers, with a number of awards: in 2006, the Screenings prize in Berlin; in 2008, the Arcimboldo award for the digital creation; in 2009 he was rewarded by the APPPF in the photography of architecture category, and in 2010 he received the Eurazeo prize. He has been exhibited in New York, London, Los Angeles, Paris and Seoul.
This exhibition is in conjunction with Galerie Paris-Beijing, which is dedicated to contemporary world photography, with gallery spaces in Beijing and Paris.
