First monograph of the artist Julien Benhamou, official photographer of the Paris Opera, expert in the art of dance, movement and body.
Julien Benhamou - Poetry of Movement
If photography is the art of capturing time and seizing a fleeting moment to install it in eternity, then Julien Benhamou's art is the quintessence. He is the photographer of dance, muscle and movement. Whether photographing outdoors or in the studio, it flies and it flutters; the style is airy, the dynamics built as a rhythmic measure.
The image remains fixed but the object is versatile, volatile, mobile, animated by the cadence: the show is alive. Julien captures the poetry of curves and lines and offers us a representation of aesthetics. Time is suspended, as are his model dancers who, under the guise of Greek gods, will never fall again from the jump they have just made.
