French-born, Madrid-based photographer Pierre Gonnord (born 1963) has spent a great deal of time among the gypsy communities of Spain, particularly those in Seville and Perpignan. "In such a strong and marked community, it is hard to arrive and take pictures immediately," he observes, and after an extended period of acclimatization, Gonnord was accepted by his subjects and permitted to photograph them. "The people I met were extraordinary. There was a real exchange, in silence, trust and intimacy." Deeply painterly, Gonnord’s photographs draw on the Spanish tradition of portraiture established by Ribera and Velázquez, cloaking their subjects in dark, sober backdrops and bathing their features in a light that draws out every expressive crease and wrinkle with dignity rather than intrusive scrutiny. This volume gathers Gonnord’s widely exhibited gypsy series for the first time.

Descripción La Fábrica/Centro de Arte Tomás y Valiente, 2013. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: New. This is a stunning collection of images portraying Gypsy people from throughout renowned photographer Pierre Gonnord's career. Large-scale, highly detailed, and dramatically lit, with dark, blank backgrounds; noted French photographer Pierre Gonnord's images recall the paintings of Goya, Caravaggio, Velasquez and other old masters. Gonnord's subjects belong to communities on the margins of conventional society - homeless urban youth, gypsies, tattooed Japanese gang members, and others. Gonnord's art transforms each into a vision of compelling, unexpected beauty and dignity. Face to face with the viewer, these evocative, eloquent portraits are intended, says the artist, "to narrate unique, remarkable stories about our era. Sometimes hostile, almost always fragile, and very often wounded behind the opacity of their masks, they represent social realities and sometimes another concept of beauty." This magnificently illustrated volume brings together images of Gypsy people - the artists most portrayed social group - captured by Gonnord throughout his career. Nº de ref. de la librería 000495
