Le photographe en quelques mots...

Jérôme Bonnet, a French photographer, takes portrait photographs for the media. 


His recognisable style is much referenced in cinema, he introduces fiction into portraits and makes it part of a story. His cold, much contrasted universe in which a character’s gaze is averted, wanders and then settles is catching. One is surprised then fascinated by the dark, much contrasted images and the realism.
Jérôme Bonnet’s work is recognised and published the world over.
In 2009 and 2010, he received awards in the World Press Photo contest.
His portraits have taken pride of place in American Photogaphy for several years.
For the past three years, Paris Cinema International Film Festival has presented an exhibition of Jérôme Bonnet’s photographs at the entrance to the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (National Library of France).
Several of these portraits were exhibited in May 2012 during the French May festival, a great meeting held annually in Hong Kong to celebrate French culture.
During the Mois de la Photo 2012 festival, he took part in the Regards Portrait exhibition with fellow photographers from the Modds agency, under the auspices of the Maison Européenne de la Photo.
Jérôme Bonnet was jury member at the World Press Photo contest in 2012.
In 2013, Jérôme Bonnet’s photographs were exhibited at the first edition of the Vichy photo festival.


Jérôme Bonnet is represented by modds works at the Festival de Cannes for the French magazine TÉLÉRAMA.
