The story of Jean-Denis

I am mad about sport from my teenage years when I was immersed in my mother’s world as a picture researcher. My career combines these two worlds. I was Head of Photography, then Editor-in-Chief at L’Equipe Magazine, then went on to design and produce Hobo by L’Equipe, a documentary photography feature magazine on sport. For the 15 years that I worked in the Equipe group, my experience and knowledge of this pictorial world grew on a daily basis. Photos speak to me, and I know how to listen to them.

At the end of my career with L’Equipe last year, I decided to set something up based on my skill and genuine passion for photography, and in particular, sports photography. I also wanted to make the most of the ties I had developed with the photographers I admire and who trust me. So it was a natural and obvious step to share this passion by opening a gallery.

The concept of the gallery

Each photographer whose work I syndicate has an unique style. Some specialise in one sport, some don’t, but each shows a personal, rare and esthetic view of the special world of sport. The photographs that I have chosen explore many styles. They are the result of a passionate but level-headed choice. They are certified, signed and numbered, limited edition prints, a guarantee from the photographer and the gallery that they are not more copies, they are the ‘real’ thing, the original work, and purchasing them is an investment as well as a pleasure.
