“Bernard GILHODES stops, takes his time, recuts, reframes, absolves masks to erase the actor and transcend the Being. Without taking the last subway, let yourself be caught by these glances that offer themselves, accept the phantasmagoria through your “Basic instinct”, until you are bewitched. This man humbly surprises us in our private lives, extending our dreams in large format. He is the passer-by of the carefree, confident in his choices, who sculpts a gallery of intimate portraits without hubbub, with the elegance of a photographer with a passion for cinema. A native of Tunisia, Bernard GILHODES has retained a taste for the contrast of light and shadow from his sunny homeland. After secondary school, he first turned to computer science, before trying his hand at a number of jobs that gradually led him to photography, a passion to which he has devoted himself since 1976. Over the years, he has practiced all aspects of this art: portraiture, reportage, illustration, fashion, advertising, but above all, show photography (concerts, opera, theater…). Bernard Gilhodes covers cultural events such as the Festival d’Avignon, the Cannes International Film Festival… and his photos appear in the international press. “
