Christian Courrèges

Born in 1950 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Christian Courrèges has specialized in producing portraits of people belonging to different groups. He is interested in toreros, took close-ups of Haitians, of prisoners and warders of the Baumettes Prison; French and English magistrates, Catholic prelates wearing their vestments.

In each set, the artist isolates the topic of any decor. The image is then exclusively framed on the individual who is identifiable thanks to an attribute or a costume related to their function or their condition.

But the artist shows things beyond appearances and social categories, he asks himself questions about the tension between group membership and the assertion of individuality, between authenticity and "social mask ".
