PIERRE MANNING

jqch6npmyvpn1k324vl6

Photographer and partner at Shoot Studio, Pierre Manning is known for his portraits, his light, his efficiency, his organizational abilities, his speed, and his sense of humour. A Swiss Army Knife in the studio, he keeps up the morale of the troops, is outspoken, and sings old hit songs. Wouldn’t trade the gang, the cyclo, the terrace, his parking space, and team meetings for anything else. Founder and member of the image makers since 1989.

By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, Manning tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
His photos appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, well-known tropes merge, meanings shift, past and present fuse.
