  • Jean-Paul Bourdier: Bodyscapes
    http://artsyswag.com/
    August 3, 2012


    Jean Paul Bourdier is a California-based photographer who reminds us in his work that we are all part of the nature and even more than being a mere part of it, he is trying to say that bare human body is the basic and original means of measuring the world. He concentrates on the beauty and geometry of the human body, combining landscape and flesh as a canvas to create a visual union.
    ...than to speak out and remove all doubt." - Abraham Lincoln

  • He explains his understanding, motivation and expression of the human form behind his compositions:

    'Arising in each visual event conceived are the geometries generated by the body as a determinant of 'negative space'— not the background of the figure and the field surrounding it, but the space that makes composition and framing possible in photography. as an organizer of space, the body also serves as a primary measuring unit, by which one perceives and constructs one’s environment. Such an approach can be linked to the practices of literally using the body as a first unit of measurement, which were not only common to the building of vernacular architecture around the world but were also at work in the temples of India, Egypt and Greece, for example.'

  • 'In working with the bare and painted body, I am also working with the demands and challenges of a body-mind state that I call 'not two—many twos'. For example, without clothes the body regains its undivided primary nature, being intricately part of the forces of the universe. One and many. The visual works I come up with are thus a continual experiment of how we physically, rhythmically relate to this universe from the specific, intimate bodyhouse.'

  • 'Rather than being a mere recording of an encounter between event and photographer, the photograph is an event of its own: long prepared, and yet full of unexpected moments; a still manifestation of an encounter between desert light, body light and camera eye.'

  • The 'Bodyscapes' project, to now be documented in a publication, establishes a clear and unadulterated reverence to something shared by all, creating corporeal experiences that extend beyond to that of the natural cosmos and defining the sometimes forgotten innate relationship with the two.
