RENOIR Jacques, photography, permanent artist of Galerie Capazza since 2010



Jacques Renoir, atavism obliges, (great-grandson of Auguste Renoir, nephew of Jean Renoir) asserts very early its passion for the image and the photography.

Awarded with a diploma of Photography and Film by the Technical School Louis Lumière, he is the assistant of the most renowned directors of photography and film directors (Roger Vadim, Claude Sautet, Pierre Granier Deferre, Lewis Gilbert, John Frankenheimer…) but his curiosity to discover the world pulls him in the trail of Calypso and Cousteau for 7 years to film and to realize the episodes of the famous television series.
Then he moves on with international reporting: Bangladesh, North Korea, Lebanon… for the TV.
Finally return in France to take up with the cinema and the TV dramas (Navarro)
Author of a biographical novel on Renoir and his close relations " The Loving picture" Fayard editions, which was adapted to the cinema in 2013.
His passion remains, always, the photography. Picutres seized during these trips are reborn by the magic of the digital technology. He experiments and his photos " torn up Posters " aim towards a plastic expression close to the painting but still he puts in coincidence the forms and the colors in a series of photos in APS format.
After a retrospective to the Museum of the photography of Mougins, then a thematic exhibition "Imprints" in the chapel of white penitent in Vence. He exhibits in Paris in the gallery Bernheim-Jeune then rue de Seine in the gallery " At the bottom of the yard " a series large formats, "Collisions".
