Born in 1929 in La Ciotat, he passed away in 2020. After spending most of his life managing a lamp factory, he retired from the business in 1993 and discovered, as a self-taught, a strong passion for photography. After a workshop in Arles, he begins to use the photomontage through which he represents the most disparate situations and surreal landscapes. His style is unique: his small theatrical productions have in common the derision, the absurdity and a humanoid humor that sometimes recalls Eugène Ionesco's theater of the absurd. His works have been exhibited in Europe and around the world in numerous exhibitions, fairs and photography festivals. On the occasion of his 80th birthday, Postcart and Filigranes have published a retrospective of his work in the photographic book Mister G.
