Guest photographer at the Planche(s) Contact festival in 2014

Thierry Dreyfus

The reputation of Thierry Dreyfus is in his collaboration with the world of the fashion of which he lit the fashion shows since 1983 (Versace, Jill Sander, Calvin Klein, the last fashion show of Yves Saint Laurent in 2002) or the lighting of the big monuments of Paris, the Grand Palais, Notre-Dame, the basins of the Castle of Versailles. But by dint of mastering and directing the light for ephemeral moments, Thierry Dreyfus works as a photographer, a secret work for a long time, with only one goal, only one obsession, to capture the light! To photograph lights that he did not create but that he observed and that moved him. He likes to capture and share the essence of light in photography (which literally means "writing light").

In Deauville, he captured the lights, those of the sky but also the artificial lights. He looked at the landscapes from ground level. As a light designer, he was given carte blanche to animate and illuminate Les Franciscaines chapel, an unprecedented performance before its renovation!
