Jean-Pierre Attal

Jean-Pierre Attal - photographer

Jean-Pierre Attal is a photographic artist born in 1963, currently living and working in Paris.  He is particularly well known for his works about urban society and the place that man occupies within it.

A study of urban society

Since 2000, Jean-Pierre Attal has been working on a reflection about urban society.  What this photographer is studying is the place of the individual within the city and the paradoxes of these landscapes and urban life.  The artist’s photographs are presented in a large pictorial and geometric format that, as one gets closer in order to observe the details, enables the viewer to enter into the daily intimacies of the city’s inhabitants.  The paradox between grandeur and microscopic realities is then highlighted by the photographer in a sort of urban kaleidoscope.

From urban representation to interior reflection

In his latest series, Jean-Pierre Attal has distanced himself from the urban landscapes and leads us into a more personal universe.  This series which is entitled “Interior Architecture,” is an introspective representation of life’s journeys and interior reflections.  In places, these images are blurred as a result of pixelization which represents the “shadow zone” of each living being and provides free rein to the imagination and personal reflection.  Each photograph in this series also contains a single pixel, which, contrarily, represents a choice of direction, an element of free will which belongs to each individual.

An international artist

Devoting himself to his different photographic works since 2000, Jean-Pierre Attal has had numerous private and public exhibitions in France and abroad: in the United Kingdom, the United States, Spain, Greece, Poland and Germany.  This photographer has also published his works in a book entitled « Urban Chronicles » which came out in 2008 and has been translated into English
