TOUCH MOMENT WITH PHOTOGRAPHER ALEXIS REYNAUD

Photography by Alexis Reynaud (www.oneflash.ch/ www.alexisreynaud.com)

For my next touch moment, I am very pleased to introduce you today to Mr Alexis Reynaud; a talented conceptual and commercial photographer based in Geneva, Switzerland.

For me art is the ability to provoke emotion in the viewer. After notable exhibitions in Basel, Paris, Monaco and Gstaad, his artistic vision and work cannot fail to leave you "untouched". From the urban and graphic like  Bangkok series to the sensual nude studies "BODY AND WALLS" and the snowblind visions of mountainscapes dappled with "SKIERS", he has defnitely left his recognizable fingerprint on all he touches in the exclusive world of Swiss photography. Alexis splits his time today between periods of intensive personal artistic work and being a very successful commercial photographer specializing in the luxury brand segment. We simply can not wait to see his new work unveiled in forthcoming exhibitions in Basel (ArtBasel), Zurich and Paris! I must say that my favourite series is the "PETRIFIED MAPS" collection. I am already considering a diptyique in my living room!

For our touch moment, Alexis flung open the doors to his studio for a private one to one tour. It is always so inspiring to enter into the private world of an artist, to see what inspires him, the space where he creates art that can move and inspire.

Today, discover the inner world of a talented artist and learn more about this ambitious, secret and driven man.
