Jean-Luc Moulène (born in 1955) lives in Paris and works in specific situations. He uses photography as a tool for studying natural and cultural phenomena as they have been redefined by the development of the industry, media and commerce. He considers photography between fine arts and media. Away from communication model (a quite powerful functionalist utopia with dream of an infallible tool for appropriating the social imaginary and consequently determining social behavior), he tries to emphasize the gap between the tool and the imaginary so as to produce real poetic alternatives.
Professor of Research Program (1998/2004)
