Alain Longeaud - photographer
"“I do not follow any intent, any system, any fashion. I have neither plan nor style nor pretence. I love uncertainty and permanent insecurity."

Alain Longeaud is a French visual artist who uses the medium of photography to express his artistic work.  He currently lives in Paris

An atypical career path

Alain Longeaud’s career path to photography is not easily traceable.  He started his studies in the field of mathematics having realised, thanks to several encounters, that everything is not only logical.  He then tried the piano and then turned towards a more visual art form: photography.

Decisive encounters

Alain Longeaud really discovered what he wanted to do with his life through meetings with other photographers.  He started his career as an assistant to the fashion photographer Helmut Newton before meeting the photographers Bill Brandt and Ralph Gibson whose black and white worlds greatly inspired his first efforts.  Since 2005, Alain Longeaud has concentrated on his personal work.

To transcend reality

Alain Longeaud’s work is now focussed on conceptual photography and is the complete opposite of his initial inspirations.  The possibilities offered by digital retouching enable him to express a vision of life in colour.  It distorts the reality by adding colour and mystery which draws out what makes it special and unique.  The work of Alain Longeaud is able to stimulate the imagination and illuminate a reality that is maybe somewhat dull.
