Always passionate about photography, I financed my studies by photographing concerts in the north of France at the end of the 70s. I developed and printed the images at night to sell the prints the next day. Arrived in Paris at the beginning of the 80s, I meet Willy Ronis in the Ménilmontant district where I lived. This meeting, followed by many others afterwards, was a revelation on the treasures of humanist photography. My quest for prints began at that time when galleries and salons practically did not exist. This collection becoming invasive, I then had the idea of creating the argentic.fr website to share this passion and widen the circle of lovers of this great and beautiful school of emotions and rigour.
The ARGENTIC gallery, located in the Mouffetard district in Paris, has presented around thirty exhibitions and participated in multiple fairs and exhibitions. She stopped in 2021 allowing me to share my time between my two passions: photography and Brittany where I live part of the year.
My credo: ARGENTIC, a site created by a collector, for collectors.
The argentic.fr site was created in 2005, specializing in French humanist photography and presenting vintage or modern silver prints, all from my collection.
This site only shows part of my collection, do not hesitate to contact me for any request on a particular photographer.
