Livre photo - HISTOIRES DE CORPS

My dear friends, family, or you, dear stranger passing by,

 

 

The genesis:

 

Let me introduce myself, Jam Abelanet, french photographer and artist for ten years and in visual creation for 20 years, "Histoires de corps' / Bodies' tales" project started by chance. Initially just a little envy to portraits, oily and simple, model friends.

Thanks to its peculiar look, like a touch of polish to the photos, I gradually first opened the project to men, then to different body shapes, and very quickly, the substance exceeded its shape.

 

Those bodies, faces, gestures, each element providing a different and personal feeling, each body telling the story of its owner ...

Each one of us has a body, during our life, we go through multiple feelings against this mortal coil. At the end of adolescence or at the edge of illness, whether the body is perceived as a prison, a tool, a blessing, a canvas to be paint, or a simple container, whether it makes us suffer or a source of pleasure, we can not ignore it. And the picture one gets is often different from the picture we have.

Then quickly the urge to transcend the picture, to offer a personal testimony, to tell a story with words along with the image. With the own words of those very men and women. Thus, throughout the pages, handwritten testimonies of these men and women of all backgrounds, of all ages, sometimes light, sometimes troubling or deep, help us to understand their portraits, as well as an opening to the Other, the one who has his own body, necessarily different from ours and who need, like we do, to deal with it, each one in his own way.

In these times of divisions, when everyone of us gives his opinion on sexual orientation, morphology or color of the neighbor, this project, without bias, where a wide range of people, often under-represented in the photography universe, has the opportunity to express themselves with pictures and writing, gives a nice life lesson; Because we are human, simply human.   These men and women who dared to be naked in front of the camera make us wonder about how everyone can deal with its body, reminding us that we all are different, unique, and that is ultimately this difference that makes our species so rich.               - SEE SELECTED PHOTOS AND COUNTERPARTIES - To see the photographs taken, and to choose the counterparties, including prints on paper and acrylic glass, you can select among all the photos visible in the gallery, specifying the number of the photo: FACEBOOK GALLERY

Allocation of funds

Good news ! The project finally coming to an end, the book layout is validated, and photo shoots are almost buckled. Once this crowdfunding finished the book will go to the printer to be available for Christmas 2016.   What a lovely gift isn't it? :)   A beautiful 24x32 cm format in French, also with english translation, hardcover, 160 pages of deep humanity under the Christmas tree, printed at Escourbiac, the best printers in France on a beautiful semi-matte paper 170g.   Auto production (and also my own finances!) have their limitations, I therefore appeal to you all, to finance part of the printing costs, which amount to more than € 13,200 for the first 500 copies.   If we exceed INITIAL SUM - I will launch the printing of 1,000 copies instead of 500, for an additional cost of € 3,000     thank you for passing by reading my project, and I hope it will make you want to join me in the adventure !! See you soon !  

Jam Abelanet
