Ludovic Florent

France Born in: 1976

Photographer Ludovic Florent quickly specialized in studio photography, focusing on the expression of beauty, graphics and body grace.

Favoring chiaroscuro, his artistic research turns to refined representations of the body, favoring emotion over sophistication, natural over seduction.

In our rapidly changing society, his photographic work is guided by a humanist gaze, the desire to bring back to the fore the natural beauty of the body, free to express its grace and personality.

The idea for his Star Dust series came from an aesthetic requirement: the desire to show moving bodies by extrapolating each impulse, by giving them a scale that allows them to fit into a temporality other than that snapshot of the photograph.

By its grace and its intrinsic beauty, the dance immediately imposed itself on him. he therefore wished to collaborate with dancers from different disciplines: classical dance, modern jazz, African dance, Latin dance ... in order to be surprised by very different ways of expressing himself, each time closely linked to the deep personality of each one .

Indeed, it was very important for him to show free bodies to express the image of human beings in fullness, in a relationship to their own simple and whole bodies, without artifice or desire for seduction.

Thus, the nude has imposed itself naturally for reasons of fluidity of the body on the image. It is a component without being its main articulation. The naked body has no erotic pretension here, but fully participates in expressing these notions of freedom, fullness, self-assertion and strength.

"Star dust": the infinitely small rubs shoulders with the infinitely large. These loose, fully earthly bodies seem to dance with the entire universe. In its own way, this photographic series is thus a plea against all constraints, whether cultural, religious or ideological, which encircle, repress and undermine human beings.

His latest series, Amaterasu, is part of this tribute to dance, but also to women, in this environment where everything is worn, transported, diffused and diaphanous.

Starting with light, the photographer's central material, and to which the name Amaterasu refers: the sun goddess in Japanese Shinto art.
