THE 25TH FRAME
September 8th - September 29th, 2018
Patrick Curtet is a French fine art photographer and cinematographer based in Los Angeles. Having fallen in love with photography since his early childhood and inspired by Hollywood cinema and the iconic California lifestyle, Curtet wishes to share his artistic vision of the west coast glory years by revisiting his favorite iconic American cult films; a suspended dimension where all heroes come alive.
Curtet takes us on a road trip back in time to the Golden Age of 70’s Hollywood. Considered the New Wave of America cinema and reflecting the influence of Classic Hollywood, films such as “Bonnie & Clyde,” “Wild at Heart,” and “Bullit” are re-imagined and brought back to life in Curtet’s clever contemporary tableaus.
Patrick Curtet is one identity, one eye, one personality, one vision, one spirit and one soul.
By capturing the moments and emotions of the influential films of the era, his photographic re-enactments guide us by his inspiration straight into the scene. More than just a photographer, Curtet believes that everything is a story and every person or place has something to tell... we just have to see that extra frame. Patrick Curtet’s artistic practice is a stunning experience in photographic verisimilitude, creating a new link to the Hollywood of then to now.
Patrick Curtet is currently an AC Gallery Exhibitor on Artsy.net
