As a son of a garage owner, he will always maintain a keen interest in « celestial mechanics » - his experiments will successfully result in many inventions in the industrial field which he rejects by distilling its objective approach. François L’Hotel’s photographs deny up to the presence of the image itself and endow the matter with an immaterial substance that attracts the viewers and incites them to question the issue of detection, to read and interpret the image in a haste that allows the eye to evade control. The pictorial dimension of his work stems from his training as a painter. François L’Hotel’s language is undeniably that of poetic emotion which he assigns to his photographic worlds by transferring the absolute purity of austere aesthetics to the image. ART ATTACK SFArt Attack SF is an art space for contemporary work and community-minded pop-up events.
