Visages, parures et minéraux

November 20 – December 13

In 2019, after having worked in Vietnam, Japan, Mali, India and Ethiopia, Jean-Baptiste Huynh launched his new travel photography project dedicated to Kenya. The artist examines the importance of aesthetics through the ancestral ceremonies and rites of the tribes of this country, notably living alongside the Masai, the Samburu and the Turkana peoples. As with each of his photographic expeditions, Jean-Baptiste Huynh seeks to offer an authentic portrait of Kenya through the faces of its inhabitants, the study of still lives and emblematic objects of the country as well as through its mineral, vegetal and animal worlds.

“When I take the shots, time slows down in an intense face-to-face encounter that I create. The person being photographed feels what I am seeking to reveal about them with my portrait.”

— Jean-Baptiste Huynh
