A.Poupel©zingarolecheval.jpg

"I am concerned about the very etymology of the term photography, it is a question of painting, to draw, so the notion of author remains central in my work, if I chose the photographic medium, it is to deconstruct his mechanical character, reintroducing the part of the artist who uses light as a pictorial material. The monotypes that I realize undergo various treatments, which make them unique but while reinforcing their photographic specificity.  I act with chemistry as a painter with its palette, this one is always the receptacle (the revealer) of the light with
which I draw. "  Antoine Poupel
