AM ART FILMS SERIES: Philippe Durand

“La créativité du vivant”

Philippe Durand


Born in 1963 in Oullins (France) Lives and works in Paris Philippe Durand is a French photographer born in 1963 whose practice is based on the process of strolling, tracking in the most prosaic everyday life the fleeting signs of the evolution of society and the world. Adopting a documentary style, his approach to the photographic medium is resolutely anti-spectacular and non-eventful, striving, like Bruno Serralongue, to bear witness to the world in an oblique and poetic way.

His work has been exhibited in many places in France such as FRAC Basse-Normandie, CRAC Sète, Villa Arson Nice but also the Geneva Photography Center and the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago. His work appears in public collections such as those of the Pompidou Center, the Grand-Hornu Museum (Belgium) and several FRACs (Brittany, Rhône-Alpes, Lower Normandy and Limousin).
