BIOGRAPHIE

Biographie en cours de finition

Born in 1964 in Geneva Switzerland, Jean---Paul Cattin received his first telemetric Canon camera at the age of
12. He was quickly fascinated by photography and only two years later, at the age of 14, the local Swiss newspapers
were already publishing his landscapes reportages and portraits.
Another two years later Jean---Paul Cattin began studying at the prestigious Photography School of Vevey, in
Switzerland. After receiving the Federal Swiss Diploma in photography in 1984, he left Geneva for Paris where he
would soon become a people & fashion photographer. 1992 while continuing his work in Paris he based himself in
Geneva. Cattin was now shooting international campaigns for luxury brands and directing numerous commercials.
While his fashion & advertising work was praised for its precision and creativity, in 1999 Jean---Paul slowly shifted
his photographic interest towards still life and by 2001 he was producing campaigns and editorials for
international luxury brands.
In 2007, Cattin’s interest for artistic work developed and his photographs in Switzerland, America, Germany were
awarded in international competitions and published in magazines.
His work is highly influenced by urban environments and organic decay. Cattin is looking for a reinterpretation of
reality namely urban elements taken from the places he explores. Walls, floors, garbage trucks or any other
terrestrial material, which are the basis for his work, are reviewed, contrasted to the extreme and highly detailed.
Cattin’s pictures are romantic, nostalgic, and often haunting observations. They are a narrative of imagined
experiences, like successions of images, ideas, emotions and sensations we discover through memories or dreams.
They include large---scale abstract photographs in which reality is reinterpreted in a poetic and dramatic manner.
Jean---Paul received several photographic awards and nominations in the categories of fine art and abstract. His work
is exhibited across the world in places such as New York, L.A, London, Berlin, Milan, Brussels, Seoul, Singapore, Honk
Kong, and Miami… Based in Geneva, Jean---Paul works in New York and Europe.
