Pierre Gély-Fort ☟ AUTHOR - photographer ☟

A photographer and creator of books, with a penchant for visual worlds, rich in colour, Pierre Gély-Fort extends his love of travel through the books he designs and lays out himself.

Life Impressions

Without texts or legends, the geographical locations become the pretext for an artistic expression, outside of a traditional narrative documentary or photo-journalistic document. The author reveals his travels and encounters across a range of countries by means of an emotional gaze and an inherent, underlying dialogue.

Wanderings & Encounters

Throughout these different peregrinations, the viewer / reader can infer the author’s singular imagination, empathy and tenderness towards the photographed subjects, and the authenticity of the staging.

Street Impressions

The assemblage, resonances and scenography constructed from these photographic moments foster a dialogue between the images, and create a proximity with the subject.

Seaside Resort Impressions

Although the emotional worlds may differ from one journey to another, the gaze and the affinities between the images gradually become familiar.

Broken Silk Road

The viewer / reader recognizes the same warm and sensitive atmosphere through the choice of light and colours that recur throughout the images.

Legends Never Die

Pierre Gély-Fort is a Frenchman, born in Algiers, who has lived in different parts of the world for over 25 years: Asia, Eastern Europe, and Scandinavia. He studied at Les Gobelins (Paris) and took a number of masterclasses with Klavdij Sluban.

Extrême Far East

An encounter with Agathe Gaillard encouraged him to pursue his passion for creating artist's books. Pierre Gély-Fort takes his inspiration from colour photography and the artistic evolutions of colour analog film photography.
