Eric Rondepierre

Date of birth : 1950

Country : France

Born in Orleans, France
Lives and works in Paris.

Born in 1950, Eric Rondepierre is considered a quintessential figure in contemporary fine-art photography. His work examines the imaginary and conceptual ties between fine-art photography, cinema, video and animation.

In the early 1990s, he began to explore what he terms the “dead angles” of cinematography, extracting from feature-film spools photograms damaged by projector lights. The surreal poetry of these “accidents” brings new intrigue to life for the viewer.
