Jean-Baptiste Huynh was born in Châteauroux in 1966, of a French mother and a Vietnamese father. As an autodidact, he taught himself photographic, lighting and printing techniques, which he mastered to the point of developing a pure and personal style. The individuality of his photography is recognisable in a large body of work that includes portraits, nudes and still-life projects and is well in evidence in his most recent series: 'Mirrors, Fire' and 'Twilights'.Read More
Huynh’s thematic preoccupations include the face—and the human gaze in particular—the play of light, the sense of timelessness, and the attempt to capture infinity. Huynh considers the staging of his installations—their scenography—along with the conception of his books, as integral parts of his artistic vision. He has authored nine volumes dedicated to portraiture. Jean-Baptiste Huynh has exhibited in major galleries and museums worldwide.
