There must be 1,001 things to do to get ready for a show like yours.
Hi Ed
You're not wrong! this is why this can be done thru the dedicated Facebook page.
The website NOIRS is not "message/advice compatible" it is not built on a CMS aka Wordpress, so this is just not technically feasible.
We'll may remember your suggestion for the next (after NOIRS) exhibition!

Although this can be done here in OPF!

PS and BTW one can invite friends to like NOIRS FB page, the more friends the more we can get from our partners!

Nicolas, I have viewed this a few times...and I am intrigued and curious. The first time was to gauge the terrain, so to speak. The other times to enjoy, learn and expand my thoughts.

I am surprised that while folks on this forum have zillions of words to offer on ‘ art ‘ and vision, none has found the time to comment on a work of real substance and expanding ones horizons.

Guess we all are masters of theory.

Bonjour Fahim
Yes you're right,the least we could say is that I'm quite puzzled…
We're on times of Facebook, Instagram and so, using pre built filters which are imHo the contrary to creativity…
But at least I had very few but very nice comments from people I do care about there thoughts…
Despite our new world, I still prefer few but good as opposed to loads with just a click on e pseudo "heart"
Some decades ago I would have preferred a loads of good comments!

So thank you very much for your comment!
Now I wish to know what my work on NOIRS did convey to your thoughts !

We will see how many will comment about my new website

Nicolas, in one of post, you asked me for my reaction to this offering of yours.

I am not a design student and neither am I very fluent in artistic discussions. From my perspective, these images represent a flash back. Of times past, of beautiful and disturbing amalgamations of thoughts and events.

How can one appreciate the beauty of light, color, happiness and sorrow...if one has not experienced the joys and fears of the night?

This series reinforces, in me, that light and ‘ noir ‘ are complementary. One without the other is useless.
Just as life.

Take care.

Thanks for the feed back
there's no need to be a design student or a very fluent artistic speaker!

The feeling when one watch an image IS important. Thank you for sharing yours!

One of my interest nowadays is to show that culture is important of course, but that on top of that humanity and links between men is the upmost thing…
I am working now (with Romain) on a large subject, a (real) story of a Japanese and a French creators, "dealing" together on a shared creation. From this a photography book and a film should arrise (hopefully in 2019)…

Preparing an exhibition is a long work of studies, tests and trials…

Glad to share these in OPF…

Hi Asher
yes, carbon fiber.
I have no idea of what the cement is…
This image, part of a series shot in La Rochelle, is imho, an interesting counter point to the mineral and organic ones post just above.

I did not realize I had not commented on these noirs. I was distractedcby the pleasure I had in seeing you refer to The pictures by Wolfgang Plattner! I followed that link, was so thrilled that I awarded myself a cup of British tea. My dreamy brain thought “These guys are really good!” Then my assistant came down from the studio, told me the model up there had been waiting and waiting and thought I had abandoned her!

Yes, sometimes I am absent minded and get distracted by the next beautiful thing!

I will return to comment on these very shortly when I am by my calibrated monitor! Right now I can see the benefit of thinking CMYK and giving black it’s due respect and full stature as “color” that moves us!

We’re still working our researches for NOIRS, opening is in 5 weeks!

Here’s a part of a series, not sure they’ll all go to the printer!









In total there will be a magnificent film shot and edited by Romain and 25 100x150 cm (approx.: 39’’ *59’’) prints… But what a Huuuudge subject!

Default Almost ready!

Hanging on June 19, that’s already tomorrow!

This is not our first exhibition, far from that, but this is the first time that we’re almost ready 10 days in advance…

So last Tuesday (we’re Saturday at time of writing) I went with Romain at Dupon lab to check the test files, promising!



And yesterday I went at the lab to check the prints (almost giant for fine art: 140x105 cm that is 55”x 41”) Wow! I don’t know if may images are fine, but I can tell that the quality of the printing is breath taking!






Now it's time for the lab to do the lamination on Dibon…

On Romain’s side the trailer is ready, you may watch it there:
http://noirs.art/index_en.php#Trailer

All photos shown here are iPhone snaps, hosted by Facebook (to experiment the longevity of urls)

Again, more infos on the "NOIRS" exhibition[/B]
