Sylvain Guenot - Portrait Photographer
I am fascinated by people and I have a passion for black and white photography; these two interests come together in my portrait work, which for me is not only an endless exploration
of the many facets of human character but also the means of my artistic expression.
Consequently in my portrait commissions I am always seeking to vary my approach to the sitter and to his or her personal world. So many things, the quality of light, the particulars of composition, even the very smallest of details can serve to reflect the subtleties of individual psychology.
A formulaic approach to portraiture is something I hope I will never be guilty of. Just as each individual has unique characteristics, so should each portrait; no two should ever be the same.
I live and work as a photographer in Stroud, Gloucestershire, having moved to the Cotswolds from my native Burgundy (France) in 1992.
I was elected ARPS (Associate of The Royal Photographic Society)
