Raphaël Jaimes-Branger: Monumental, An Homage to Louis Daguerre
In this exhibition, Raphaël Jaimes-Branger pays tribute to the daguerreotype via a technique of his own invention. His choice of subject matter, art and architecture, reflects his desire to indulge in beauty for beauty’s sake.
Since discovering daguerreotypes in a dusty attic in his childhood home, Raphaël Jaimes-Branger has been fascinated with the early photographic method. Their silvery surfaces captivated his imagination, leading to an adulthood search to replicate the daguerreotype’s physical properties without the use of harmful chemicals.
In this exhibition, Jaimes-Branger pays tribute to this process via a technique of his own invention, without the possible fatal consequences of mercury exposure.View more
