Gilbert Garcin is a “jeune premier” who this year will be celebrating his eightieth birthday and fifteen years of a dazzling career. We are happy to share this pleasure with his public and his many fans by putting on a retrospective.It may seem absurd, or even out of place, to speak of Monsieur Garcin as a “jeune premier”, but don’t worry, he won’t mind –quite the contrary. He usually responds with a quiet chuckle and the falsely modest delight of the highly
respected star that he now is. In order to shed a little light on his success,
I shall briefly recall how it all started.

Gilbert Garcin


Gilbert Garcin native of Provence, began to make photographs at retirement. After an internship in Arles he discovered photomontage, where he features in different situations, in landscapes unreal. His singular style: its small theatrical feature situations have in common derision, the absurdity of the situation and a humanoid humor that sometimes recalls the theater of the absurd, by Eugène Ionesco.
