Jean-Christophe Ballot, born 11/02/1960
Diploma of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs.
He graduated from la FÉMIS.
Pensionary at the Villa Medici in 1991.
All its work is directed on the area:
- cities with the urban landscape and architecture
- ports and industrial landscapes
- the gardens, the natural landscape
- spiritual places, lapidary and archaeological sites
- places of remembrance.
Her images question the memory, they relate to the history of these places and their transformations.
The bulk is still an exercise on the vacuum that is at the centre of all his photographic work, and its reflection.
Search time suspended, and claims a contemplative photography.
