Cyril Manzini, film photography


Born in Paris in 1988, Cyril Manzini devotes himself to film photography. It works with all formats ranging from 35mm to 4x5 inch format. In this artisanal practice, he himself produces color and black and white silver prints in his laboratory. His eye, attracted by the great masters of painting, led him in his search for aestheticism to carry out various advertising campaigns as well as fictional films that he wrote. He then works with mannequins that he stages until obtaining the desired image. The use of Polaroid leads him to complete his research of faded, desaturated, and dreamlike images with inimitable rendering.

During his travels, he is inspired, amazed, once again sharpens his colorist eye and discusses another form of relationship to time, especially in Asia.
