Martin d'Orgeval

Martin d’Orgeval was born in 1973 in Paris, where he still lives and works.
While studying art history at the Sorbonne, he designed several exhibitions and books on the work of the French photographer François-Marie Banier, including Perdre la tête (Steidl) in 2005 at the Villa Médicis in Rome. In November 2006 he edited Le Chanteur muet des rues (Gallimard), a collaboration between F-.M. Banier and the Italian writer Erri De Luca.

Martin d'Orgeval's work centres on highly dramatic still lives and landscapes. Alternating documentary style and abstraction, his photographs transpose the sculptural dimension of their subjects and lend the medium a poetic aura of reality. His works have been exhibited in Italy, Germany, and France. In Paris they have been shown at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie and the Galerie Ghislaine Hussenot.
