William Guilmain

Born in 1983 - France


William Guilmain is a self-taught photographer who fell in love with photography when he was missing words for his poems. When he was 20 he discovered analog black and white photography through Raymond Depardon's book “Errance”. From then on, he never stopped taking pictures.

As a researcher in biology he is constantly questioning the marvelous and scary world that surrounds us. He combines the desire for a direct aesthetic with the permanent desire to transmit an emotion and to question the reader who would spend some time on his pictures.

Forever in love with women, he dedicated them the series “Urban Women” in which he questioned their place in the cities. His work becomes more and more intimate and shows his personal interrogations (series “No kids around”) that bring into question our own existential doubts. His photography talks about the difficulty of being, the quirks of our society, how to travel and the interior universes.
