Born in 1952 - France
Born in 1952, Philippe Manicacci has, thirty years ago, swapped his doctor?s white coat, specialised in ophtalmology for a Leica. "The world is made of moments of life ; I?m here to capture social phenomena", he says.
Before turning to contemporary art, Philippe Maniccaci grappled with two radically different worlds: the beauty of glossy paper, ie, fashion, and the anthropogenic chaos with the Kosovo war.
From this dual experience, he tries to capture those moments when death stays side by side with money in a deafening silence. He launched the movement of "Iridoarthérapie", where the experience of a clinical gaze combines with aesthetics and beauty.
Philippe Maniccaci works photography as a Tintoretto or a Titian, seizing the spiritual light in furtive moments of a broken world.
From his photos, digital or film, he adds artificial , gaudy,violent colors and makes it it a juxtaposition of several moments of life.
Artist-alchemist, he delivers works that can be read at three levels. "Take the time to observe my works ; take ownership of my works ; read them closely then far away, and for some of them, use the 3D glasses. And now, listen to your feelings?".
We can not remain indifferent to his works, which capture the century with brilliance.
