  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    We know the artist, director and author, but photography has been an integral part of his work for more than 20 years.
    The filmmaker surveys the cities that will become the subjects of his films and, thanks to the still image, constitutes a veritable visual logbook. This locating work is essential for the director to capture, according to his own sensitivity, the reality of a metropolis and what constitutes it - the architecture, the dominant colors, the natural light, the types of population. These photographic notes inspire him for the writing of the scenario, which can even serve as a starting point for the idea of a scene.
    The Paris - New York series, like a sort of urban route between these two cities, looks back on the places that inspired the director to the visual universe of several of these films. Paris is a city that has never ceased to be at the center of the artist's creation - until in 2008 it became the main subject and the eponymous title of one of his films. The fact of mirroring Paris and New York makes it possible to confront these two cities, to oppose them sometimes, but also to link them through the gaze of the director.

Cédric Klapisch

France Born in: 1961

Director, screenwriter and producer Cédric Klapisch is nowadays a reference in French cinema.

In 1995 he directed Le Péril jeune, a cult film that met with both public and critical success. With Chacun cherche son chat and Un Air de famille - César for Best Screenplay - he established his popularity in France.

But it's in the 2000s and with L'Auberge Espagnol, the first part of his trilogy followed by Russian Dolls (Les Poupées russes) and Chinese Puzzle (Casse-tête chinois) that Cédric Klapisch is internationally recognized as a major director of contemporary French cinema.

Passionate about images, the artist has a particular attachment to photography, a real starting point for his films. In 2014, the Galerie Cinéma exhibited for the first time Paris-New-York, a selection of photographs that inspired the film Casse-tête chinois.

In February 2017, Cédric Klapisch returned to the Galerie Cinéma to present Nature humaine, a photographic work around the presence and absence of man in nature, an exhibition also linked to cinema since it concerns location photographs for his film Ce qui nous lie.

From the streets of Paris and New York to the landscapes of Burgundy, we find in the images of the photographer the same gaze of the director who, like the characters of his films, observes the world through windows, always able to capture a certain form of loneliness, and transforming banality into beauty.
