In between two projects, Guillaume J. Plisson develops a personal, intimate work, which flourishes in his studio as well as all over the globe, involving his questioning, and exploration on shape. With free rein over his illuminated, photographic art and narrative experimentations.
Fascinated by images since his childhood, Guillaume was trained at the CFJ (Training Center for Journalists) in Paris. His career began as a press photographer, allowing him to satisfy his curiosity and his thirst for understanding the world. But the weight of words, sometimes felt as a burden, led him to develop a more personal work. For the past ten years, he has devoted most of his time to a research on the ephemeral that combines light and image, entitled: Lightgraff.
In 2007, Guillaume publishes his first book and the first dedicated to Light painting: "Lightgraff", published by Graff-it, of which he is co-author, with the artist Rézine. Guillaume introduced this practice to many artists and set up the first public performances: Nuit Blanche 2007 in Paris (Gobelins, the school of image), Fête des Lumières 2008 in Lyon (Place Bellecour). From these accomplishments one after another, giving rise to exhibitions, performances, shows, commercials...
Throughout the projects, this research unifies artists and technicians from different disciplines: photographers, audio-visual directors, editors, cameramen, light designers, musicians, composers, sound designers, computer technicians... allowing evermore ambitious achievements.
