“My work can be considered as a political message because the knowledge about the other can lead to the love for each the other and therefore leading to a peaceful existence.”
Undoubtedly, it is the representation of the human character that fascinates me. I have a simple and an optimistic look towards the world where I wish to show the beauty of human diversity and its tenderness through my eyes.
Jean-Pierre Duvergé is an adventurer, an explorer, an experience seeker and a photographer who is constantly tied to his camera. He has travelled extensively to many parts of the world including countries in Asia and Africa. This series of portraits made in the south of India is what I found particularly intriguing being an Indian myself. Jean-Pierre’s subjects somehow seem to be enjoying this curious attention of a visiting foreigner, and vice versa.
