After a university path turned towards literature, languages, fine arts, Jean Guy Lathuilière chose photography as expression’s medium in the middle of the 70s.
He got involved at first in a humanist photography, but the wealth of his questioning and the scale of his glance, bound to a downright refusal of belonging to a one and only
photography movement, led him to privilege a creative practice focused on the use of photography as a fine art.
He’s been using singular or primitive techniques: pinhole, camera povera, old processes for printing such as gum bichromate, salt & palladium-platinum printing, favoring mainly experimental researches.
Photography being a part of his everyday life, he’s centred his work on series, trying out to deliver an unusual vision of things in an intimist way.
JG Lathuilière’s photographs have been published, awarded or exhibited in some gallery-shows from different countries such as France, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Switzerland, Italy, Japan, Taiw
