Patrick Messina is a French photographer who at the beginning of his
career shot portraits of celebrities for newpapers or magazines such as
Libération, Les Inrockuptibles or Télérama. Through this work he
perfected what became his style.
Patrick Messina uses a view camera,
often used forarchitectural photography, which permits him to shoot,
without special effects, blurriness and depth, using different levels of
sharpness. This technique allows him to work in detail on the nuances
of color in the images and to offer, as a painter, an individual,
personal interpretation of reality.
