Georges Rousse, A Sculptural Photographer
Georges Rousse is a French artist and photographer. He was born in 1947 in Paris, and he currently lives and works there.
Georges Rousse's works are considered to be unique in the world of photography, as his process goes far beyond just lighting a scene and capturing an image on film. Rousse is, in essence, a “sculptural photographer”, in that he alters the scene with elaborate and precise paint patterns and physical manipulations to yield an entirely new space. Much of his work consists of altering abandoned places, and to the casual observer, it may appears that Rousse has superimposed color and geometry upon these images. But Georges Rousse spends days carefully crafting a new form to these scenes, with color, light and sometimes wood that results in truly amazing imagery. The abandoned places of the world take on a new meaning under his lens, and we the observer are enriched as a result.
Wait, isn't it too complicated to get what these words are saying? Then Let's start figuring out how he manipulates the mundane and abandoned space to show an extraordinary view.
These are interesting for sure, but why? Rousse shows an interesting color and weird feeling which means you will doubt whether he photoshoped the images or not. Let’s look into his secret.
Now, you maybe slap your knee saying “yes!!” If you get more interests in his works, it’s time to read the second pharagraph again and think.
