This exhibit features photos taken on a photo trip to Havana, Santieras and Trinidad, Cuba. Many people have holidayed in Cuba and returned with standard holiday shots. Instead, in this show I share what I captured of the people and culture of this wonderful country.

FINAL-MOMENTS.jpg

We all have it. Two sides. It’s hard wired into us from our very beginning. How much of one side versus the other varies from person to person, but there are always two sides. To everyone.

 

“Duality” presents where I’ve been and points in the directions I’m going - whether it’s into the world to create abstract images out of  details or into the studio to create an imaginary scene on an empty table.

Open Print Review

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no Open Print Review until further notice.

Artist Statement

I started photography when I first moved from the countryside to Paris, as an impulse to capture the atmosphere surrounding me while wandering in streets in awe, moved by unforeseen events popping around.

By using black and white films, my work is framed by a set of constraints: wandering in streets is guided by the limits of the film used and the corresponding amount of light needed, this creates a thin line on which to walk until shutter release.

 

I have been following this line for years in multiple places, from Paris, Dublin, to New-York, snapshotting unexpected moments I would encounter.


Biography
Sébastien Rannou is a street photographer living in France, who specializes in black and white analog photography. After experimenting on his own with self-processing, he followed advanced courses in film processing, printing and photography at The Darkroom in Dublin, Ireland. His work gathers snapshots of streets all around Europe as well as in the USA.

ViewPoint Gallery is adhering to all COVID-19 protocols as directed by the provincial government. However, as these protocols change the gallery’s hours and events may be affected. Please see the gallery’s Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram accounts for up-to-date scheduling information.
