In his serie Insolations, Antoine Henault presents a collection of images composed with the light of a sun that seems eternal. His photographs, captured in the diversity of the landscapes and beings he encounters, are the narrative of a re-harmonized world. The color intervenes there like synesthetic memory by invoking radiant perceptions: It is about feeling « the taste, the texture and the smells « of colors. Fruits, flowers and relaxed bodies are cut by the shadows of a hot summer afternoon or illuminated by a soft winter sun. The near and the far are treated with wonder and benevolence, as the testimony of a state of softness.
Antoine Henault is a French photographer born in 1992. As a teenager, he discovered the work of Saul Leiter, the color work of Jacques Henri Lartigue and the paintings of Edward Hopper. He claims a self-taught learning and a visual culture fed by the Internet, an education of the glance which is formed in the free circulation of the images. His pictorial universe is built in answer to the nature where he grew up and which remains his main source of inspiration. Graphic and sensory, his work celebrates the intimate connection between beings and their environment, a re-enchantment through contemplation.
Antoine Henault won the dotation Filippo Roversi du Prix Picto de la Photographie de Mode 2022
