Patrick Curtet is a French fine art photographer based in Los Angeles. He revisits his favorite iconic American cult films in his new exhibition THE 25TH FRAME. Having fallen in love with photography since his early childhood and inspired by Hollywood cinema and the iconic California lifestyle, Curtet wishes to share his artistic vision of the west coast glory years; a suspended dimension where all heroes come alive.
Patrick Curtet is one identity, one eye, one personality, one vision, one spirit and one soul.
By capturing the moments and emotions of the influential films of the era, his photographic re-enactments guide us by his inspiration straight into the scene. More than just a photographer, Curtet believes that everything is a story and every person or place has something to tell... we just have to see that extra frame. THE 25TH FRAME emphasizes his artistic vision with surprising compositions, dramatic back-lighting and captivating imagery. Patrick Curtet’s artistic practice is a stunning experience in photographic verisimilitude, creating a new link to the Hollywood of then to now.
