The first time I saw Jean-Baptiste Huong’s work, I was quite simply blown away. It helps that we have very similar taste in men, but just his eye and talent and…it was love at first sight!
Jean-Baptiste is very precise when it comes to staging his photographs: he likes to set a scene, usually in natural decors, with his models being true characters … and even if he likes to feature partially or fully naked men, he does so with a sense of poetry and sensibility.
Born in Saigon, Jean-Baptiste is a director, editor and image designer based in Paris… “…I believe that the best frames are a perfect balance between the right people and the right setting. It’s the same thing in life : sometimes, it takes a special someone to make a special moment, in a special place.”
“As a photographer, I’m always looking to showcase a sense–my sense–of beauty; but then again, beauty can be found everywhere, in a diversity of bodies and spaces. “When you get that perfect combination, the result seems unreal … a ‘fortunate happenstance.’“
Jean-Baptiste has a book of his photography, Secret Places, which is sadly sold out–there were only 1000 copies. But he does have a website and an Instagram.
But wait! There’s more!! You can buy his short movie, Because You’re Mine, on Vimeo, for only a dollar from now until the end of May.
I hope you love his work (I think you will). Check it out, vote for your favorites, and if you want, check out the links I’ve provided.
