Philippe Gérard Dupuy

Exposition d’honneur

Philippe Gérard Dupuy

Philippe-Gérard Dupuy took his first pictures when he was about 10 years old. At the time,
his favorite camera was the “Brownie Starlet“, ideal for meticulous family pictures.
He subscribed to the "Human Sculpture" club, a bodybuilding training course by mail,
managed by the wrestler Robert Duranton and captured praiseworthy pictures of his own
advantageous poses in the wardrobe of his parents.
When he was 13, he tried to shoot with a “Zorki“ a portrait lit solely with a match, but as he
used a flash, the result exceeded his expectations.
His perfectionism did not go unnoticed (at the age of 14, he installed a wooden handle on
his high school photo club camera) nor did his research skills (adaptation test of a peephole
on his lens).
Philippe-Gérard Dupuy joins a photo club by mail where he was taught the art of
photographing donkeys in meadows. It did not take him long to co-found the “New
Expression“ club, whose activities typically consisted of spending the weekend in Barcelona
because one of the founders had a driving license and a car.
For a long time, at weekends, he worked as a ghost-photographer for the professional
wedding photographers of Toulouse. During the week, Dupuy cleaned supermarkets photo
booths and as a maintenance test, he took an important series of grimaces, lost since then.

FREE PORTFOLIOS READINGS
Annual meeting since a few years, the Festival ManifestO in collaboration with Espace Saint-Cyprien organize
free portfolios readings for photographers.
Real exchange moment, portfolios reading allows photographers to present their work to experts of the image
world: gallery owners, agencies, critics, directors of festivals, iconographers to collect a critical appreciation,
find opportunities to spread their images or to expose. This initiative fits into the will of the festival to be a
springboard for photographers.
