At Galerie Photo12/Florence Gruère: Portraits
Ansel Adams, Carmel, 1981
A gallery of 20th century Artists
French Photographer Florence Gruere captures the thoughts, dreams, and souls of the artists in her portraits. If photography is the Art of Light, Gruere reveals her subjects inner radiance. Among the forty prints featured in the Portraits of Artists show, you will find a large selection of major Photographers from the XXth Century (Brassaï, Man Ray, Bill Brandt, Kertesz, Cartier-Bresson, etc) as well as artists Ms. Gruere has a particular interest in such as Lawrence Durrell, Peggy Guggenheim, etc..

Peggy Guggenheim, Venice, 1970
Unique prints
Gruere uses a printing technique based on the gum bichromate process. This technique was favoured by some early Photographers of the 19th century such as W.H. Talbot Fox. A heavy weight cotton watercolor paper is used. Gruere does her own mix to create a coating. The paper is then exposed and washed, which makes each print unique. “I love these prints. They are images on which you can put your fingers. They have a strong texture.
No two are the same, even if I try, I can’t make it. It’s the limit and the beauty of this process.
