New book presents Eric Maillet's entire body of personal photographic work
Out in the UK on 7 September.


LONDON.- Water and nature occupy a very important place in Eric Maillet's works. Water is captured in many forms; snow, ice, bubbles... Maillet's images reduce nature to its simplest element allowing one to contemplate its unexpected aesthetic. The female body also holds an important place through his work and finds a harmony in the artist's nature-focused universe.

Maillet's work has always taken into consideration that an open book or magazine invites the reader to look at two images simultaneously and this book presents his work in this way.

Maillet chose the paradoxical words 'Silent' and 'Conversations' to reflect the relationship between his images used to create diptychs. He wanted to underline the exchange between each image and indicate that it is in the middle that things happen, causing us to ask ourselves questions. The photos are silent yet they tie together a long personal history, much research, and many conversations.

Eric Maillet (born 1957) discovered photography at the end of the 1970s. A completely self-taught photographer, he cultivated a style influenced by the work of Brodovitch and Rodtchenko. In taking inspiration from painting, he quickly realized that the graphic impact, the lines, and the composition were a fundamental base in making an image perfect. He spent many week-ends at the Louvre and studied the great masterworks at the Prado Museum in Madrid. Maillet admires the great reportage photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Willy Ronis, and it is through this perspective that he approaches his still-life work: a reporter exposing and describing what he sees in every day life.
