Étienne Bertrand WEILL

Released in October 44, in this France that comes out very deprived of the occupation, Étienne Bertrand Weill buys a used rolleiflex and develops his photos in his bathroom with an enlarger he made with a biscuit box. He works for illustration while working in all areas of photography.
Following his meeting with Marcel Marceau, he turned to theater, mime and dance photography. His effort to suggest the movement of the scene in the still image, leads him to his research and personal creation: the Metaforms. The photos presented are part of public or private collections. Some have been exhibited or published, others have appeared in various shows.
