Artist Profile

Thibaut Duchenne was born in the French region of Picardy in 1966. After having completed his studies of agriculture he took over the family farm in Ver-sur-Launette in the département Oise, cultivating cereals and sugar beets.

At the age of 35 his father gave him a camera. From this decisive moment onwards, he started to accompany his daily labour on the farm with a photographic activity.

Progressively his photographic work took him further away from his farm, always on the quest for places abandoned by humankind. Recently he travelled the USA in order to find places similar to those which haunt and fascinate him since the beginning of his photographic experiences.

Thibaut Duchenne first exposed his work to an art audience in 2012, at the 57th edition of the Salon de Montrouge, one of the premier venues of contemporary art in France. In the catalogue accompanying the Salon, the art critic and exhibition curator Étienne Gatti first acknowledged his work.

Thibaut Duchenne’s photographs have since been published and exhibited in a number of magazines and events, including L’Œil de la photographie, the Green Flowers Art Gallery, and the exhibitions Salon Photo off (2014, 5th edition, La Bellevilloise, Paris), Parti(e) du paysage by Galerie Simon Cau and Art is Hope at Galerie Perrotin in Paris in 2016.
He had his first solo show at Galerie Pugliese Levi in 2017. In 2018 his work was shown in the group exhibition As You Like It -- C’est Comme Vous Voulez, by Praz Delavallade, Los Angeles.
