  • About the artwork

    Spectacular, mysterious, elegant or grotesque, the skeletons of vertebrates peopling the Earth today carry within them the traces of an evolution spanning several billion years. Patrick Gries has photographed in B&W over 250 skeletons from the National Museum of Natural History in Paris and four other museums in France. His work is at the crossroads of photography, contemporary art and sciences.

    This project conceived by Xavier Barral and Jean-Baptiste de Panafieu has been published in the book Evolution in co-edition with the National Museum of Natural History, Paris. It chronicles the history of our era, a history recorded in these bones.

    Portfolio in an original acrylic box including:
    Three series numbered from 1-100 (I, II, III)
    Each series includes three platinum prints produced by amanasalto, Tokyo
    Print size: 20,9 x 14,8 cm

Patrick Gries

Born in: 1959


Patrick Gries is an artist born in Luxembourg in 1959. He studied at the Normal School in Belgium than settled in New York in 1984 after his discovery of American photography. He started to work as an assistant in a photography studio before working as a free-lance. He settled in Paris in 1992, where he exercised different professions in the world of luxury, design and contemporary art.

Very talented, his work is noticed in many institutions as the Cartier Foundation and the Quai Branly museum. He then became a major actor of the edition world. His expert eye allows a precise contextualisation of the work of art, characteristic of his work. It enables him to fix the beauty of any object, monumental as the giant thumb of Caesar or the tiny brooch of Van Cleef & Arpels.

Patrick Gries created a special relationship with the fashion, art book, architecture and design worlds, that led him to participate in many projects. The artist did not necessarily stop his personal work, leaving its marks on people's minds with his series "Evolution", pictures of 230 skeletons and "Visibility/Invisibility" on albinos in Tanzania.
