About Jean-Luc Mylayne
In his large-scale color photographs, Jean-Luc Mylayne, along with his partner and collaborator, Mylène, meditates on the convergence of art and ornithology. Having abandoned the conveniences of home, car, and material ownership in pursuit of a nomadic life devoted to his art practice, Mylayne photographs birds in their natural environs. His ongoing project is bound in the intense intersection of observation, time, place, and natural history.
French, b. 1946, Amiens, France
