Huynh, Jean-Baptiste - Ethiopie (New in plastic!) (Extremely rare!)
Ethiopie is a photographic chronicle of Jean-Baptiste Huynh's journey through Ethiopia. He involves us in his encounters that bear witness to ethnic and religious diversity as well as to the intensity of being. The faces: Orthodox, Muslim, of forgotten tribes, unveil untainted beauty through the elegance of features and the emotion of gazes. From children to the elderly, women to mothers and soldiers, every portrait reveals force, character, and tenderness. This work offers a timeless vision of Ethiopia.
Jean-Baptiste Huynh was born in France (1966) to a French mother and a Vietnamese father. He taught himself photographic lighting and printing techniques, which he mastered to the point of developing a personal style. His pure and timeless photography is recognizable in widely varied subjects, including portraits, nudes, minerals, and plants, as well as spiritual symbols and emblematic masterpieces. Jean-Baptiste Huynh’s running themes include the human gaze, our self-image, interplaying light, a sense of timelessness, and an attempt to capture infinity.
Jean-Baptiste Huynh considers the staging of his installations – their scenography – along with the conception of his books, as integral parts of his artistic vision. He has personally authored fifteen books.
