Portrait Photography With Richard Dumas


12 - 15 Jun 2024

“Richard Dumas is not a portraitist, but a photographer. In contrast with another photographer named Richard (Avedon, to be exact), Dumas is not a socialite or a star because he shoots celebrities or fashion photographer. This distinction is not intended to tarnish this celebrated photographer’s essential role but to better understand Dumas’s personal talents. He is immediately recognizable by his somewhat dandy-like elegance and his intuition for strong and restrained contrasts. His pictures appear to be placed out of time, making them icons through the mystery of his images and their unexpected vibrations of light. This refined photography is nourished by literature, Portuguese cinema, and a rich breath of music ranging from jazz to rock.” Christian Caujolle
