Christophe Beauregard is a French photographer who lives and works in Paris. His atelier is located in the Bateau Lavoir of Montmartre.
He places the issue of artifice and pretence at the heart of his research. His work deals with ambiguity, language tricks and sensorial devices (music, lighting, costumes, etc..) operated or invented by anonymous people.
He exclusively portrays women and men in their apparent singularity. Yet beyond these flattering, well-framed and well-lit pictures, he strives to capture the tension between the onlooker’s desire to observe and the characters and personalities of the sitters. His images are always the result of a staging and a photographic composition, between documentary and concept.
Christophe Beauregard’s photographs show how our body has to pay the price for this obsession of giving meaning to our existence: tension between body and vision (It's getting dark, 2013), plastic surgery (Surgery, 2005), tattoo removal (Pentimento, 2011), decaying bodies on the streets (Semantic tramps, 2008), urban choreography (Technomades 2008).
