Daniel Boudinet. Le temps de la couleur


The name of this photographer has long been forgotten, for he died very young in 1990, at the age of 45. An exhibition at the Jeu de paume in Tours and this catalogue now pay tribute to him. This native of Chamonix married reports for the art press and decoration (L’Objet d’art, Décoration internationale) with special links with exceptional persons such as art critic Bernard Lamarche-Vadel or Roland Barthes, who commented some of his photographs in his seminar. While is photos in black and white play subtle games of shadows, as mentioned in the introduction, his colored photographs (the subject of this study) on the contrary is very contrasted, saturated. We can then see him in his subjects on Italy (the garden of Bomarzo or Brion’s tomb, designed by Carlo Scarpa) and in his Parisian interiors. One of the great series of Boudinet’s focuses on nocturnal urban atmospheres, something like an ideal illustration of the book by Richard Bohringer, whcoh also came out in the 1980s, C’est beau une ville la nuit
