Specialized in digital special effects for cinema and audiovisual, Patrick Siboni has always been fascinated by photography. When he was eight years old, his father gave him his first disposable Kodak: it was the founding act of a passion that will never be denied. At the age of 26, he left for New York and understood, through his lens, the excessiveness of the city. Other favorite subjects follow: counter-culture, animals, architecture, experiments on UV light ...
Over the years, Patrick builds a particular technique thanks to which he acts, so to speak, as a “sculptor of colors”. Today, his images are recognizable at first glance.
But his love at first sight is Japan. Dreaming of this country since childhood, he finally went there in 2013 and never stops returning, several months a year. It was there that he met Jean-Christophe Grangé. Together, they decide to dedicate a book to this country they love so much.
Today, Grangé says of him: “At night in Tokyo, Patrick becomes a surfer. He takes the wave and dives inside this overpowering vortex. It becomes a point of balance, between speed and imminent fall, precision and lightness, bringing us back universal images from these intimate journeys. "
