With closed shutters

Like Vincent Delerm, who invited him for a creative residency in Deauville, Pierre Cattoni comes from a musical background. While working as a project manager for the record company Tôt ou Tard, notably with the group We Are Match, Pierre Cattoni fell in love with photography. Although he has been practicing it since his adolescence, it is the discovery of a film camera that holds his attention and pushes him to devote an increasing part of his free time to photography. His pictures are snapshots of his personal life in Paris, and of the trips he has been making since 2014. In search of an ordinary beauty, of a poetry of the unexpected, he lets himself be carried by everyday scenes and tries to restore the emotions he feels there.

Her work was first exhibited in June 2018, at Galerie Aiguillage, Paris.

About Pierre Cattoni's exhibition, A volets fermés:
In summer, all the residences of Deauville seem to live "with the shutters closed". Pierre Cattoni has chosen to tell us the story of the seaside town in winter with the shutters closed. From color to black and white, but always in film, Pierre Cattoni captures the hibernation of these seaside residences in the off-season, blinds down and doors closed. He evokes the life that goes on: the activity of the guards and their lighted lodges, the mail that piles up in the mailboxes, the almost ghostly presence of the few permanent residents...
