Didier Massard photographs Imaginative locales constructed in-studio


Didier Massard was born and raised in Paris where he received his Baccalaureate degree in art and archaeology from the University of Paris in 1975. For twenty-five years he executed commercial work as a still photographer for clients in the world of fashion and cosmetics including Chanel, Hermes, and many others. After the completion his series Imaginary Journeys, executed over almost ten years, his career was launched and he now works exclusively on his personal projects. His series are conceived from his imagination while drawing from our collective romantic and touristic notions of nationality and place. His exotic locales created in his studio have evoked Ireland, China, India, Holland the cliffs of Normandy. Massard works slowly, completing only two or three images a year, and ruminates that “each image is the completion of an inner imaginary journey.” He is represented by Julie Saul Gallery in New York.
