THE FACES OF CINEMA

Paparazzi hunt cinema stars down, he, makes sure they live for ever. Jean-Baptiste Le Mercier left Paris for Toronto, before moving its suitcases to London. In 2016, commissioned by Business France and Madame Figaro, he took a series of portraits at the Toronto International Film Festival.
In front of his lens, a real catwalk of celebrities: Lily-Rose Depp, Isabelle Huppert, Gaspard Ulliel… Perfect pictures. You would never guess Jean-Baptiste often had a minute at most with the actors. The light seems to caress their skin, highlight the shape of their face, reveals a candid or self-assured side while staying true to their personality. Through these photographs, the artist opens a window in a different world, giving an insight on who the stars representing French cinema are, once they step off the stage.
