In just a few years, Mathieu CÃ©sar has established his modern yet timeless vision of photography and spread his wings to directing.
With a mix of precision and a light touch he draws a black and white universe playing with shades of grey, flat areas of deep black and subtle blurs.
"The black and white photo has a timeless quality that I love. I've always been very inspired by legends such as August Sanders and Irving Penn and their iconic images."
This self-taught talent, primarily doing portraits, describes himself as a curious people's person: "I love having the chance to meet so many interesting people. Just imagine that my job has allowed me to meet the first man on the moon â€“ and to get him into his original space suit!"
Mathieu quickly seduced the most prestigious magazines (Harperâ€™s Bazaar, Lâ€™Officiel, Another Magazine, CR Fashion Book, Vogue, EgoÃ¯steâ€¦), photographed several contemporary legends (Iggy Pop, Daft Punk, Buzz Aldrinâ€¦) and collaborated with celebrities such as Natalia Vodianova, Tilda Swinton, Mila Jovovich, Lana Del Rey, Natalie Portman and Laetitia Castaâ€¦
He has also photographed and directed campaigns for several high profile clients such as Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel Joaillerie, Louis Vuitton, Lâ€™OrÃ©al, Alexandre Vauthier, Thierry Mugler and more recently Nike.
