Son of a soldier, Julien Malabry embraces his photographic practice in the very particular context of his engagement of more than 10 years in the French army. Sharpen his look and his sensitivity to light during his missions, the accuracy of his frontal framing seduced the Festival Selection Committee.
Witness to a world that oscillates between modernity and tradition, his images are supported by an assumed, but fought leitmotif, which affirms that "habit kills the eye". His photography then becomes a flagrant reflection of an abandonment that has been silenced: man ceases to consider the past as a stakeholder in the present, his gaze loses interest in everyday elements. Julien Malabry questions and tries to overturn a particular relationship between man and the world. His photographs, produced regularly in medium format, are bathed in white light which supports a real force of proposal, in the imposition of forms.
