Analog pictures, digital techniques, collages and montages are melting with a remarquable fluidity in Jean-Vincent Simonet’s practice of photography defined by overcharge, overflow and sliding. Bodies and places, nature and artificiality, poses and feelings drown in this aesthetic of excess, funding the constant searching of the photographer. Jean-Vincent Simonet (b. 1991) graduated from ECAL in 2014. He is based in Paris and Zurich where he juggles between commissioned photography, editorial and personal explorations.
