After working for many years with silver-emulsion cameras, the rise of digital techniques has been, for him, the start of a new photographic era.

The pleasure of instantly processing images, and the almost infinite possibilities of lenses and cameras, allows him to let go his creativity.

Curious and a traveler, his photographs display the wide range of experiments and inventiveness of this self-taught photographer. Keen on black and white, his city shots are true portraits. Appealed by HDR and selective colors, he will bring up dreams from his cameras.

An old medium format cameras collector, you may see him in Paris or Amsterdam walking with one of his old-timers around the neck. “There is nothing like going back to the source to keep the passion alive!”

    Jean Michel has loads more on his website – “red” (these are so cool), boats, places, people, and more. And they are for sale, peeps! Jean Michel and I have an agreement that will allow me to use a different version of the blue and white boat in Honfleur for the cover of one of my sometime-to-be-published collections!

  8. Beautiful. I particularly enjoyed the photo titled, “Venice.” Thank you for introducing me to a new artist and his work.

  9. Very unique and interesting work, Jean Michel…
    Another great guest, Karen!
