Loïc Guston

Born in 1960 - France


Loïc Guston was born in 1960 and experimented with cameras since his art student years. He bacame an art teacher and a photographer with a keen interest in architecture and urban landscapes. His style gradually evolved infusing the places photographed with sensibility and a psychological dimension. Loïc Guston works with not one but several lights. His preference for black and white is an aesthetic choice consistent with photography's role as a memory keeper. Black and white guides him in his artistic and creative work. His look at a changing environment in a timeless universe is that of an author.

Gallery owner's introduction:

When I stumbled upon Loïc's paper photography work in January 2015, the gallery as it is today was quite still and looked like more as a project. Though, his writing talent immediately led me to offer him to work on a personal exhibition. I told him: "I did not yet know when, where nor how, but I would definitely exhibit his work".
There are very few artist authors capable of telling you a story while letting you imagine your own.
Beyond his writing talents, Loïc has total mastery of composition, lighting and overall aesthetics.
While designing the layout for the exhibition, I felt that something else had just begun, something I myself couldn't create but which everyone could make their own.

Key dates and moments:

Loïc's works were exhibited at BarrObjectif photojournalism festival in 2013 and 2014. He also took part of the Rencontres d'Arles and Rencontres des Photographes d'Aquitaine exhibitions in 2014. In 2015 he presented his work for the Salon Photographique de la Côte d'Argent at the in)(between and Rastoll galleries.

His work was also published in 2010 and 2012 for the World Photography Contest organised by French photography magazine Photo. The “Silence” series was published in L'Oeil de la Photographie, and the “Entre-deux” (“In between”) series appeared in Camera magazine..
