Charles-Henry Bédué on family and French identity

-
Tommaso Berra
Charles-Henry Bédué | Collater.al

The seven years spent in China in order to detach himself from his roots and certainties also served the photographer Charles-Henry Bédué, in an opposite mechanism, to consolidate what had formed him, the context and all the memories linked to his family.
Born in Toulouse in 1980, he now works in Paris and since 2020 has started collecting thousands of shots of shots of ordinary life, some archival and some taken personally. The picture that appears is a familiar tale that has many points of contact with the development of French society as a whole, scenes appear that could be hidden in the drawer of many French citizens.
In Charles-Henry Bédué’s pictures there are visual and chromatic contrasts, but also thematic ones, such as those contrasting figurative and abstract, unknown and familiar, in a continuous dialogue of opposites.
Discover all the artist’s work, publications and past photo series on Bédué’s official website and instagram profile.
