Galerie XII Paris
The first solo show of motion picture photographer Stephen Vaughan.
Impassioned by photography, his camera does not leave him. SV becomes intoxicated by the heightened visual awareness in the search for moments to capture. While shooting on the set, actors do not pose for the photographer. On the contrary, he must seize on the fly the angle and the moment that will give him the best composition, that instant is fleeting.
This is the essence of the quality of Stephen Vaughan’s photographs: they are not copies of the screen, though they are parallel to the images on the film, they are original creations, a capture of an extra-ordinary moment.
