Born in 1951 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Michel Dubois has been photographing still lifes since 1980, and is particularly interested in light and its variations. The photographs of objects allow him a subtle researche on the permanence and the hidden face of the inanimate things.

In the late end '80s, the discovery of the great masters of the 19th century allowed him to take an interest in traditional supports and the reproduction of their textures and emotions through modern techniques. This approach lead to the publication, of "L'Heure du Thé" (Tea Time) in 1989, a book that reinterprets the theme of the tea ceremony, through different photography styles from 1880 to 1930.

Michel Dubois has also traveled a lot and publishes a travel sketchbook in black and white "Louise au Far-West", in 1990.

The popularization of digital technology and its immediacy will refine, purify the gaze. Technological objects and their purity are a new source of inspiration, and the computer allows the perfection of the industrial fabrication. In 2005 appears his new book, "Distractions", that brings together these clinical visions of contemporary objects.

The digital medium inspire him new works on the misleading appearance of things, the different forms of life merged together. These images, photos of details of mutants cactuses and humanoids dolls are shown in the exhibition "Hybrid" at the Gallery "Friedland Rivault".
