Josselin Apertet

Josselin Apertet was born and raised in a family of choreographers.

From a very young age, he was brought into the world of art, visiting exhibitions of painting, photography, sculpture and contemporary art, all of which shaped his sensitivity.

He began photography in a local workshop run by a photographer who introduced him to the basics of analogphotography.

He immediately enjoyed this world and decided to enroll in a technical photography course which he is currently pursuing at the ENS Louis Lumière.

The artist uses mostly analog to express himself but he also likes to experiment with alternative processes such as expired film, temperature shock, cyanotype, etc…

By photographing his life, hiking and climbing activities, and events in which he participates, he takes a subjective look at the world: « I take pictures of the moment and I compose with what is happening in front of me ». Josselin captures actions, spontaneous and ephemeral moments.

For the artist art is becoming more and more ostracizing. « In my opinion, the role of an artist is to express a message through his work, whether it is personal, political or social ».

His photographic identity is defined by images where the grain is remarkably present, which gives the photographs a strong and contrasting texture.

The photographer offers us pictures of great intensity. The situation lived, the effort, the quasi solitude in front of the nature are accentuated by the process of development, printing, experimentation of the technical processes. He invites us to walk through this space with him and suddenly the images reveal a certain fragility, carrying a message: what is my place in this world ?
