CHANCE ENCOUNTERS


In 1980, Gérard Bertrand was working on etchings at the "Beaux-Arts" . This was followed by 16 sets for which he imposed on himself very strict rules as far as size, color, support and theme are concerned and these rules change for each different set. The integration in his work of photographic material or illustrations from ancient magazines became increasingly obvious as years went by."The Album of Franz Kafka", "The Album of Marcel Proust", "The Album of Alfred Hitchcock" , "PhotoPictus" and "Meetings" emphasize this technique as in order to produce his pictures, he now assembles digitalized elements, thus making up his new sets of "recomposed photographs".
