Christian Clausier is a French teenager, when he receives his first camera at the age of 14, and it is love at first sight for him, for this new means of artistic expression and for its history. Member then responsible for a renowned photographic club in the Paris region, he sees his photographic culture walk through various galleries while practicing street photography and artistic nude in the studio. He moved to Montpellier and opened an advertising photography studio in the capital of Languedoc, took part in many national advertising campaigns and sharpened his photographic technique for fifteen years. But photography gives him the taste of travel with, as a new activity, his new job as a reporter reporter, whose signature appears in many national and international magazines.
His professional travels give him a taste for landscape photography, especially that of the great desert areas of Africa, an attraction that leads him to develop his rigorous and colorful framing. The exhibitions are linked together, as at the Institute of the Arab World in Paris, Montpellier, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Bordeaux, with for second growing interest, the history of art, minimalism and conceptual photography. . Christian Clausier is firmly established as one of the leading landscape photographers; his style is unique in that his photographs convey a spiritual quality of serenity and calm, with a particular approach to light. But not only, since his conceptual photographic works also show his developed tastes for art in general and his artistic creative sense developed.
The whole of his work is not the result of chance: his images are well thought out, the artist engages through a look that is his own, aesthetic or interrogative. He is sometimes exempt from certain rules because he has acquired power. The photographic works of Christian Clausier presented on this site are the emblematic testimonies of the engagement of the artist.
