The cORpuS photographic series, created by the self-taught French artist Louis Blanc, is a fascinating journey into the world of the representation of the human body. Born in 2011, after a series of experiments and personal reflections intensified by Blanc's move to professional reflex equipment, cORpuS stands out for its ability to capture the complexity, beauty and sometimes strangeness of the human body.

Each CORpuS photograph is the result of a unique creative process, often starting with a vague idea, evolving through a series of trials and errors until reaching a form of expression that defies convention. Blanc employs self-portraiture techniques to depict his own body in contortions that push the boundaries of bodily expression, using a self-timer and remote control to capture these intense moments of solitude and self-discovery.

The neutral background of the images highlights the main subject: the body itself, distorted, stretched, sometimes put into disturbing poses, but always captivating. It is an exploration of the human form that invites reflection on the human condition, on the fragility, strength, beauty and anguish that can be expressed through the language of the body alone.

Since its launch, cORpuS has attracted significant interest and has been exhibited in more than 40 international exhibitions, from France to Japan, New York, Italy and Russia. This series has not only received critical acclaim in publications such as La Provence and Responses Photo, but has also been recognized in international media, including Monaco Culture and the Tribune de Genève.

Through cORpuS, Louis Blanc does not just capture images; it provokes a dialogue with the viewer, a dialogue where the contours of the body speak of deep emotions, untold stories and the beauty in imperfection. This series is a testament to Blanc's artistic vision, one that continues to evolve and captivate a global audience.

Louis Blanc, Pulchrum foruM - Format M

Louis Blanc

France  • 1956

Presentation

Born in Saint-Etienne (Loire) in 1956, Louis Blanc has been living in the Toulouse region for fifteen years. After two photographic experiments (a brief one with Minolta silver reflex in the 80s and a longer one with a compact digital camera during 2000). In 2010, he realized that he didn't have much equipment, therefore he bought a (Canon EOS 550D) digital reflex and this is when he discovered photography!

Self-taught, he learned taking photos and post-treatment techniques, nevertheless he didn't hesitate to submit his work to criticism... this was always constructive.

His interest in photo quickly turned into a passion and by a mere coincidence these interests somehow became a reality: first approach being: architecture (to put it broadly) religious and historic buildings, urban landscapes. Second approach: work on the body image and body language. The Corpus series presented here is part of his second approach.

After several exhibitions in various bars and restaurants of Toulouse, Louis Blanc won the "Body Language" competition, organized by the magazine Réponses Photo and the Festival Européen de la Photo de Nu d'Arle, the first prize of this contest was a great exhibition, held at the Palais de l'Archevêché d'Arles, where the artist exhibited twelve photographs, in a large format from the Corpus series (2012).
