Jean Baptiste Huynh

Jean-Baptiste Huynh was born in France in 1966, of a French mother and a Vietnamese father. As an autodi-dact, he taught himself photographic lighting and printing techniques, which he mastered to the point of de-veloping a personal style.

His pure and timeless photography is recognizable in widely varied themes and subjects: portraits, nudes, minerals and plants, as well as emblematic spiritual symbols from countries he is working in. Jean-Baptiste Huynh’s themes of predilection include the human gaze, our self-image, the play of light, a sense of timelessness, and an attempt to capture infinity.

Jean-Baptiste Huynh considers the staging of his installations — their scenography — along with the conception of his books, as integral parts of his artistic vision. He has authored twelve personal books.
