From Senegal to the banks of the river Ganges, from central United States through Vendée and New Caledonia, Denis Rouvre travels in the pursuit of the other. Master in the art of portraiture, he knows how to capture, a body, the lines of a face, a person’s individual history.

The texture of the skin, the movement of an eyebrow, the brightness of a glance, compose an intimate picture. The exhibition Résonances gathers the works from different series, carried out between 2008 and 2013, and proposes a dialogue between: Mid Road, Lamb, Sumo, Sadhus, Kanak, and Low Tide. Whilst each of these series develops its own story, their interaction reveals the special strength of Denis Rouvre’s work. Crossing the United States from north to south, in a straight line; successfully penetrating the private club of Japanese sumos; setting off, in search of the fascinating Sadhus – the divine beggars – on the banks of Ganges ; delving into post-chaotic Japan and testifying; immersing in Kanak culture during a residency in New Caledonia; …

Denis Rouvre’s portraits give a renewed light on humankind, its identity, its territories, its ordinary heroism. The photographer offers us the opportunity of a meeting. An encounter in which we are aware of the presence of the other, and which reveals us our true selves.
