Starting a new life as a photographer essentially oriented to studio creations and street photo photography.
Born in Versailles (France) in 1954, Jean-Pierrre Chonavel is nowadays a photographer sharing his time between Paris and Sicily.
In the studio, his work is mainly focused on search of light effects and movements,
In the street it is the search for testimonies of a moment, a light or a particular situation where the human remains the central element.
Catch the moments of life, the moments of emotion, the graphic opportunity,
Mix the strength of the light and the mystery of the shadow,
Take the measure of time,
Try to see the subject beyond the label,
Change the angle,
are for him the main engine of jubilation for pressing the shutter button of his camera.
