Michel André Gauthier is an American photographer born French. The experiential richness and composition of Michel’s photography undoubtedly relate to his significant achievement as a painter and an architect.
Having embarked on a wide range of photography projects, Michel’s best-known works pertain to the genres of fine art photography and portraits. His collections contain stellar examples of well-selected luminosity and painterly form that reflect a precision of execution that echoes the most essential characteristics of his architectural work: assured compositional skills and refinement of proportions.
His portrait works, using natural or continuous light, stress his quest for authenticity over fashionable appearance and style.
His forthcoming book La Habana, Grandeur and Mystery, with more than eighty unique photos, includes a study of the chromatic palette of the legendary city.
