Do you know what a hyper-photo is? Ask Jean François Rauzier, who created the term to distinguish his work from the one common photographers do. Although the combination of art, photography and technology isn’t news to anyone, on the French’s work these elements find a truly unique approach.
Using a technique similar to digital collages, Rauzier ‘stitches’ hundreds of high resolution photos to create a huge and hyper-detailed image. His works usually gather from 600 to 3400 individual close-up images, each taken one by one and then gathered on Photoshop in order to create one single vision.
Lover of the arts, Rauzier affirms his work has a little of painting and sculpting, activities he followed in the past. “As a photographer, I can use this powerful art medium to capture reality. As a painter, I can control my image exactly and put what I want where I want. And as a sculptor, I savor spending a long time on my work, as a meditation, to have the pleasure to approach, touch and feel the texture, then back away to see the entire work. Hyper-photo is a combination of all of these”.
At his website it’s possible to take a closer look at his photos, on some kind of tour through the depicted sceneries.
