Photo Jean-Marc Vesseron

ssayan and Jean-Marc Vesseron prepare a series of photographs for their exhibition, in April 2014, at the Caractères Gallery, Charleville-Mézières (France).
An exploration about the inert and the living, the presence and the absence, the desertions of the body, the cracks of time…
Pictures played for four eyes: the doubting look of Jean-Marc, subtle and demanding, and the gaze, offbeat and moving, of ssayan, which lends her lost face to the central character of this strange staging.

Jean Marc VesseronJean-Marc Vesseron is a modest and discreet photographer, who works on the marriage of light and shadow (especially liking the black and white photography and the contrasts it causes).
In 1992, he received the first prize Paysages (Landscapes) of the French Federation of Photography, and the first prize Male Nude from the national French magazine Réponses Photo.
In 2012, he wins the Gilbert Bétoux price in Caen (France), for his series Scènes de vie à Bada cité (scenes of life in Bada city).
The same year, Jean-Marc Vesseron produces with ssayan the series of nudes Sur le palier (On the landing).

My encounter with ssayan is timely, her energy, enthusiasm are additional sources of motivation. I think this exhibition will reflect big emotions.
