Body & Bokeh
Jul 12 – Aug 30, 2018

Quentin Simon

Opening today, Thursday July 12, and running through August 30, 2018, a carte blanche, or gallery takeover initiated by Fisheye Magazine is on view at the photographic space of the Leica Store in Paris.

Three talented young photographers who have been challenged to make a photographic series using the unique Leica SL and the new APO Summicron 75mm lens from the German manufacturer.

The camera and its lens have thus been passed into the hands of Alice Lemarin, Quentin Simon, and Sergey Neamoscou in the manner of a relay. The three artists put forward the theme of the body related to the technique of bokeh to create unique dream-like world.

Alice Lemarin, a graduate of Paris Gobelins and one of the selected among 30 Under 30 Women Photographers 2015, has managed to appropriate the camera to work on the theme. “The bokeh came to me naturally at the time of shooting,” says the photographer.

Quentin Simon is a regular film user. He chose to put this equipment aside to test out the Leica SL with its 75mm. The result is a beautiful series in which moving bodies intersect in a mysterious choreography.

Finally, Sergey Neamoscou, also a fan of film, took over the Leica SL. The artist cleverly uses bokeh to give his shots an aspect on the edge between dream and reality. An intense work in which technique and feelings mingle. “Bokeh is the best way to guide the viewer who peers into the dream world.”
