Pierre GABLE joined NhevArt Gallery !
Looking at the world, children focus their attention on details. For most of us, these fragments are trivial. Kids can’t have an all-embracing view, for the world around them is too abstract, too wide. They only see but fragments of the whole and focus on a world that grown-ups no longer perceive at first sight. As far as they’re concerned, adults look at the world they live in, in a holistic way. This probably is why they’re bound by reason. Or, on the contrary, what leads them to madness. Who knows? Through my pictures, I intend, in all modesty, to bring those fragments of childhood back to life, to capture all those things that have become invisible to most of us.
Pierre Gable, writer and photographer, also is the proud author of two masterpieces, named Manon, 17, and Lou, 9.
Born in France, 41 years ago, he leaves rainy days, and the sweet melancholy of Stanislas Square behind to move in, together with his mate Carole, on the sunny banks of the Garonne River, which flows through the « Ville Rose » (Toulouse), now dear to his heart. A plant explosion still echoed in three letters, AZF, then rushes him to reach to higher valleys. He’s been living since then in the Haute-Provence area, once home to his masters, Jean Giono and Cartier Bresson.
In his childhood, his grandfather, a gardener who used to work wonders, introduces him to “the pictorial world”. Later on, Pierre does an audiovisual training so as to complete the education he received from his forefathers.
Today, as a freelance photographer, he works for literary publishers and involves in promoting various artists (concerts, CD booklets, web advertising, video clips, etc.)
Following a past exhibition held in Valence (France), in 2009, he’s now preparing the next one, to take place in São Paulo (Brazil).
In november 2010, Pierre Gable, has been selected as the 2010 GGAF International Invited Artist in Florida.
Pierre Gable was born in Nancy in 1969 and is both a photographer and a poet.
The works gathered here, each raise the fundamental issue of intrinsic bonds existing between Man and his setting.
Photography, according to Pierre Gable, is emotional, affectionate, loving, ironist, carnal, and critical, within the meaning of sensualistic philosophy.
May this collection of pictures help raise people’s awareness that they are “part of the world” anyhow.
