Biography

Jacques Renoir (great-grandson of Auguste Renoir, nephew of Jean Renoir) manifested his passion for images and photography very early.

A graduate of the Technical School of Photography and Cinematography Louis Lumière, he works as an assistant for the most renowned photography directors and directors (Vadim, Claude Sautet, Granier Deferre, Lewis Gilbert, John Frankenheimer...), but his curiosity to discover the world brings him to work on the Calypso with Cousteau for 7 years, so he shoots and produces the episodes of his famous TV series. Four nominations and an Emmy award crown this collaboration.

He continued his career and shot great TV stories in Bangladesh, North Korea, Lebanon. Returning to France, he worked in cinema and collaborated for the production of TV dramas (Navarro etc.).

He is the author of a romanticized biography on Renoir, “Le Tableau Amoureux”, for Fayard; it was adapted for the cinema as "Renoir" with Michel Bouquet in the role of Auguste Renoir.

Photography remains his passion of all times. The images taken during his travels are transformed through the magic of digital technology. He likes to experiment and his “Affiches lacérées” (Slashed Posters) have a plastic quality close to painting. He also produces a series of photos in APS format.

After a retrospective at the Museum of Photography in Mougins and a thematic exhibition entitled “Empreintes” (Fingerprints) at the Chapelle des pénitents blancs in Vence, he has a show in Paris at the Bernheim-Jeune Gallery and another one at the "Au fond de la cour" gallery, where he presents a series of large-format works, "Collisions".

He keeps producing work on various themes: artist studios, Renoir’s olive trees, nudes, the shadow and the light, travel sketches, dance and the movement…
