Biography Paul Rousteau draws away from the « perfect » image. Often overexposed or out of focus, his photographs are series of playful experiments. By pushing the camera to its limits, the artist creates new forms of perception. The result made of vivid colors and enigmatic figures has something of a daydream with a touch of kaleidoscopic hallucinations. Born in France in 1985, Paul Rousteau spent his early days at a Steiner- Waldorf alternative school. Throughout his education, he developed a special awareness towards different conceptions of reality. He also learned to cultivate defiance towards conventions. In 2010, he graduated from the Vevey photography school in Switzerland. There, he explored the iconography of his youth using the errors linked to the photographic process. Ultimately, throughout his work, Paul Rousteau aims to « show the invisible ». Navigating between figuration and abstraction, painting and digital art, the colorful and unique images that Paul Rousteau produces continue to attract magazines and brands alike. Mixing fine arts and fashion, portraits and travels, his photographs have been published in the New York Times, M Le Monde, Dazed & Confused and The New Yorker. Paul Rousteau has also worked for companies such as Hermès, BMW or Louis Vuitton. In 2017, he was part of the final selection for the Hyères festival of fashion and photography and was nominated in 2019 for the HSBC prize. His images have been shown in China, Switzerland, Germany and Italy. He is represented by Galerie du Jour Agnès b. in France and by the Forma Art Contemporain in Switzerland.
