BRUNO HOUDAYER, 39, birthplace Orléans - France.
Bruno Houdayer introduced himself as createur visuel. He shows a pictorial vision of his works by a continuous work of research on textures and the composition of his images.
He composes his images by creating or revealing new balances and movements which detail our daily lives.
His work shows an energetic, graphic and colourful vision of his environment.
His favorited fields are industrial and urban landscapes coupled with a deep fascination for the organic and vegetal.
In most of his realizations, Bruno Houdayer chooses to attribute a first place, in the background images. Doing like this he surprises us, giving to this one a strength to which we are not often used to.
During the realization of his images, the author wishes to share the emotional and visual feeling imprint: sharing of a bright, colored and peaceful universe.
Bruno Houdayer chooses to work on square image composition with his faithful medium format (Hasselblad).
For the past three years he has been dividing his time between Paris, where he does the majority of his commissioned work, and Barcelona. It is in Catalonia, inspired by the light and wealth of colour, that he works on his artistic projects.
