Book Presentation by Jean - Paul Bourdier
Jean-Paul Bourdier is a photographer of unique style, skill, passion and great imagination. His images use multiple crafts – among them painting, poetry, and performance art. He uses no digital enhancement; it is all analog photography.
What you see is what was really there.
Jean-Paul´s work is unique and both simple and yet complex. Each image is a scene – created, staged, captured - of natural landscapes joined with the human form, expressing beauty, truth and wonder in the physical plane, as well as what is in our imaginations.
Read more about his recently published books "Body Mirror" and "Body Unbound":
In Body Unbound, Jean-Paul explores the cycle of human existence through our passage through birth, life, and death. For the first time, he also reveals his contemplative thoughts on his work and its relationship to the universe that surrounds us.
Body Mirror is a contemplation of human beings’ passage on earth and their intimate interrelation with the environment. This book attempts to bring humor to the things we are getting attached to. It points at the invisible within the visible, the immaterial within the material. The naked body is seen as our primary indivisible unit of perception which is usually pushed and pulled by our thinking mind’s desire to either get less or more. In other words, our lives are colored by our minds and since body-mind is a single entity, most of the colors painted on the body are an allusion to the range of our changing desires from being invisible or transparent to wanting to be singular and the center of attention.
