LET’S GO FOR A RIDE WITH PATRICK CURTET
and do it with passion.
WHO IS PATRICK CURTET?
Patrick Curtet is a French photographer who has traveled the roads worldwide for the past two decades. He has worked on personal projects such as “Maharadja” in India, the “Forgotten Train” in China, and the “Lost Trail” in Peru. As published in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC and other renowned publications. His mantra is ‘On the Road Again’
Nowadays, his work consists in highlighting the automobiles of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Not surprisingly, Curtet is an obsessive car enthusiast.
Not just any cars, but cars with souls and history. And his scenes?
The asphalt, the road, open landscapes with unending vistas.
His home is Los Angeles, the heart of Film Culture, where everything becomes a fascinating tableau reflecting the city’s frantic lifestyle. The American spirit is omnipresent in Curtet’s work; the natural light, the Californian Vibe, and the Hollywood counterculture of the 60s are all part of the sublime and colorful settings featured in THE 25th FRAME.
A storyteller with, A cinematographic Vision.
For him everything is a story and every person, every place has something to tell. Each shot reflects
a narrative pushing
story lines and adding dimensions to scenes that are not so silent after all.
So much more than a photographer, Patrick Curtet is a Creative Director of Photography who integrates the word ’Action’ on his set’s productions.
Feel the emotion & capture the moment
Patrick Curtet is passionate about the people he encounters; he studies every movement, every detail, every breath they take; capturing different states of consciousness. He watches and waits for the right moment to photograph the essence of the shot.
Obsessed with natural light, he waits to catch the perfect moment.
Curtet spends hours looking for the ephemeral minute when everything comes to life. When the moment arrives, the whole team comes to life. Then the magic sets in and the image appears.
WHAT IS THE 25th FRAME?
Patrick Curtet is taking you on the road with him as he travels back in time on a journey through 70s era Hollywood New Wave cult films.
THE 25th FRAME exhibition is a journey we collectively experience with him as he drives us through his passions, his feelings, his emotions and the stories he wants to tell.
He revisits his favorite American cult films in his new exhibition. Having fallen in love with photography during his childhood in the 60s & 70s, Curtet’s latest project is inspired by iconic New Wave Hollywood and Classic Californian themes. THE 25th FRAME shares a cinematographic view of the West Coast’s Golden Years – a suspended vision where classic heroes come alive.
THE 25th FRAME is “THE MOMENT BEFORE THE DUST SETTLES.”
By capturing poignant moments and drawing out authentic emotions, Patrick Curtet freezes images from his favorite films and draws the viewer deep into the scene. More than just a photographer, Patrick Curtet is
a storyteller who believes that every person and place has their own story to tell… we just have to see. THE 25th FRAME focuses on telling these stories with unexpected framing, creative lighting and shadows, architectural lines, and an awareness of harmonious design. The final compositions are both modern and yet still reminiscent of the classic era which they celebrate.
