Minimalist photographer Jean-Baptiste Huynh understands how to aesthetically combine natural and artificial light. In his portraits, the artist places emphasis on the skin and the eyes of the models.
Huynh was born in France in 1966 to a French mother and a Vietnamese father. His work embraces landscapes, portraits and still lives. He therefore works with an analogue 6x6 middle format camera and has avoided to this day, to use digital photography. Nine lavish publications have summarized Huynh's extensive body of art. The artist has had solo shows in New York, Moscow, Madrid and Paris. Huynh's steady involvement in international group exhibitions, such as in the current exhibition The Portrait. Photography as a Stage at the Kunsthalle in Vienna, emphasizes his value and importance in contemporary photography.
The new catalogue entitled Jean-Baptiste Huynh - Photographs and published by Camera Work will be released on the occasion of the exhibition.
