A Parisian born in St. Brieuc, Charavet is a highly experienced photographer, capable of making tangible all the energy coming from the musicians.
Jazzespresso has interviewed the famous French photographer Bruno Charavet on the eve of his exhibition in the Espace Grange Galerie de Dampierre-En-Yveline. We propose some of the shots shown in the wonderful town in Île-de-France.
Who’s Bruno Charavet?
Born in Britanny, France (1954), I was raised in a family with a certain photographic culture. My great great grandfather was a photographer in Paris, in 1860. I began to photograph live music in 2004 and became professional in 2014 after a long career in pharmaceutical industry.
Why did you choose jazz photography? Are you only interested in jazz? Jazz has been my favourite music for more than twenty years, but not the only one. I also photograph Blues, World Music, Pop, Classical… No limit
Would you like to share with us an anecdote about your relationships with jazz musicians? My friend Didier Petit, one of the best french jazz cellist organized a performance in an abbey, during the morning, I found him in a tree.
What could you suggest to young photographers approaching this art? Be patient. Begin where the amateurs are admitted. Build you a curriculum vitae and obtain accreditations with. Build your address book (producers, musicians, organizers, press secretaries…). Submit your photos to the criticism of others.
Which is your favourite gear?
