Guest photographer of Planches Contact 2019

Photographer and songwriter, graduate of the National School of Fine Arts in Lyon and the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, Nicolas Comment publishes his first
photography book in 2001 by Filigranes: La Desserte. In 2005, his meeting with Rodolphe Burger, then with Jacques Higelin and Yves Simon for whom he worked on two albums, brought him closer to the world of music, until producer Jean-Louis Piérot offered to accompany him in the realization of a person musical project including the CD-book Est-ce l'Est? (Berliner romanze), published in 2008, is the first part. In 2010, he recorded a first album produced by Marc Collin which was praised by the press: We were God
(Kwaidan / Discograph). In 2012, following the publication of the book The Visit, he adapted to music, with Xavier Waechter, the last collection of poems by the writer Bernard Lamarche-Vadel Retrouvailles on the jazz label Bonsaï Music. The same year, he exhibited at the VU 'gallery (Paris) a new series of images and published the accompanying book Mexico City Waltz at Filigranes. In 2016, Nicolas Comment presented in Paris a vast exhibition in duet with photographer Bernard Plossu, Identification of a city then he exhibited in Vichy as part of the Festival "Portrait (s)". In 2017, he won the “Résidence pour la photographie” prize from the Treilles Foundation. His Journal à rebours (1991-1999), consisting of his first black and white photographs and archive texts, appeared in April 2019 in the Filigranes edition.
In Deauville, Nicolas Comment has revisited "sites", both cult and cultural of Deauville. A female model or her own "couple" are staged and play with the cinematographic (but also literary or musical) references of the city; thus creating several levels of readings.

Exhibition in a room at the Normandy Barrière Hotel on October 25, 26 and 27.
Outdoor exhibition under the arcades of Le Printemps store, from October 19 to January 5.
The room at the Normandy Hotel dedicated to the Cavale project is then available for rental until January 5, 2020.
