San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico
From a young age Philippe Perrin had a close relationship with the outdoors. Born and raised between landscapes and moments governed by the colors of Bourgogne, France. That is why his greatest inspiration has always been nature. He has developed numerous photographic series in many landscapes like Mangroves, Forest, Caves and Mountains.
His interes in capturing his surroundings, lead him to take an experimental photography workshop with the great masters Jean-Pierre and Claudine Sudre in Lacoste, France 1982. Since then, Philippe has traveled with his 6 x 6 and 35 mm cameras capturing the most beautiful and poetic landscapes in the dephts of the negative film.
For Perrin, to take a photograph is like trying to describe and capture the environment until one obtains an image that is printed. It is a memory of the precise moment that a story begins in our mind.
His work has been awarded the Polariod Award in 1982, Henri Vincenot in 1991 and the recent Hasselblad Latin America in the category of Fine Arts Photography for his famous series "Wild Inside" (Lejano Adentro), a work that consist of 24 photographs depicting the loss of time, each land scape showing the infinite ratio of nature in human presence.
His work is an essay on the inmmensity of which we are part, he has a wonderful way to integrate known space that is at the same time unknow and far.
His work have been at the International Festival of Torino (Italy) Talant festival (france), International Festival of Heidelberg (Germany), and Imagini Gallery in Milan (Italy)
For 18 years now, Philippe has lived in Mexico and it olny took a few years for him to feel a special connection, where he gradually discovered the place that caught him completely.
