Biography
Samuel Hense is a French artist, born in 1973. He studied in the Beaux-Arts Paris studios and took municipal lessons in Paris in photography, report-photography and studio photography. He then did a training in photojournalism at Ecole des Métiers de l'Information and during the summer of 2011, he participated in a workshop at International Summer School of Photography in Riga, Lithuania. In 2015, he did a AFDAS professional training in humid collodion and large format room. Samuel Hense's work is based on analyzing landscapes, whether they are urban or natural. For most of them, these places are either left out or forgotten, intermediate zones, ones being restructure, vernacular landscapes, cities which are on their way towards change, modern ruins to a point where they are overrun by nature, nature subject to major urbanization. The nature, urban and human relation is the main focus of his photos. If Man isn't very present physically, he is still there due to his actions on the territory, which are constant. Man creates bearings, willingly or not, claims ownership of a territory, leaves his marks on the landscape. Cohabitation with nature is complex, as our present is contradictory, between the ecological awakening and the increased economic development, and of course our uncertain future. A duality which makes this relationship poetic at times, but is often tragic. Samuel Hense often works with silver film in black and white, a photographic style which is often direct (frontal images in the« straight photography » current and for some series he uses a collection of images. The main aim of his work is to re-establish the inventory of a territory. But a subjective inventory, rather than a documentary, per say, as the remarks aren't neutral, fiction might be close by. This feeling is strengthened due to the few indications of legends, places and dates. He was awarded the SFR SFR Jeunes Talents Paris Photo prize in 2008 and his work has been presented during several exhibitions in France.
