Denis Rouvre is a French world class portrait photographer with an impressive portfolio. On his list of honour are a Sony World Photography Award, Hasselblad Master Award and a World Press Photo Award.
Denis Rouvre lives and works in Paris. He began his career as a photo editor and press photographer in the French national press. Since then, his passion for photography grew and he turned to fashion photography. Mainly portraits are a great interest for the French artist. Rouvre exhibited all over the world and photographed many celebrities. He has also published several books, photographed advertising campaigns and made covers for CD’s and press kits, among others for Cesaria Evora and Demis Roussos.
In 2017 Denis Rouvre presented a beautiful series of double portraits of humans and their environment. This series was especially created for the Lavazza Calendar 2017, a huge honour. With this Rouvre follows in the footsteps of top photographers such as Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, David LaChapelle and the Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf.
Rouvre’s portraits do not narrate anything. Instead they capture the visible detail of a spontaneous gesture, an emotion. This makes him one of the most renowned portraitists at the present time.
