New York City, New York, by photographer Jean Christophe Couet - #allcitiesarebeautifulPlease introduce yourself: what’s your name, where are you from, what do you do?

My name is Jean Christophe Couet, I am from New York and I’m an artist.

What is your relationship with photography? How did you get into it & and what keeps you interested/ motivated?

I studied photography and film at The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague ( FAMU : Filmová a televizní fakulta Akademie múzických umění v Praze ) in 1990s. I have always used my camera to chronicle sketches of daily life. Ultimately they are images that become committed to my memory. Those images reveal the details, seen and unseen, that I felt when making the photograph. The beauty in photography is being able to see what is not seeable. There are 3 cameras that I use: a Leica M6, Hasselblad 500c and a Mamiya C330. With the medium format cameras, I have spent more time discovering color and details of urban structures whilst the Leica is all about texture. The traveling I do for work is motivation enough to photograph. Again, it’s all about the memories.

What are you currently working on, and – if there is – what is your next project/ journey?

Currently I am working on an installation consisting of acrylic sculptures, projections and paintings. The paintings are based on photographic details while the sculptures are designed specifically on portraiture.

Thank you very much Jean Christophe!
