About The Work
Working on the study of colours and shapes and always inspired by nature in its raw state, the new series is pure representation of LM Chabot signature style, offering beautiful, vivid, graphic and intimate images where composition, symmetry and history comes together.
The artists, shot those photographs entirely on film, while they spent 4 months road tripping around South Africa in 2016.
WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS THE PHOTOGRAPH PRINTED ON?
All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
WHAT IS THE PRINTING PROCESS USED?
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
IS THE IMAGE SIZE THE SAME AS THE PAPER SIZE?
NO! Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum of 0.5 inch white border. This is an artistic decision that belongs to the artist. Margins don’t normally exceed 2-4 inches on each side depending on the final paper size.
LM Chabot is the type of co-dependence you dream of. The perfect fusion of technique and instinct, sensitivity and objectivity, naivety and maturity, facial hair and red lipstick.
Instead of gazing at each other all day round, LM Chabot fix their two pairs of eyes on the world that surrounds them, observing the smallest details, the tiniest cracks, the slightest leaks; uncovering peculiarities, exposing the oddities of life.
Through their lenses, the duo – who works mainly with medium and large format film cameras – cast a critical yet sensitive gaze on the environment and society, through fashion, architectural photo report and coverage. They search for that hair in the soup, the parsley stuck in your teeth, the hemline coming unstitched. They wrap it up in a perfect mise-en-scène, a gift to be contemplated.
Spicing up their couple, LM Chabot have a three-way partnership with La Garçonnière Studio, an eccentric collective of photographers and videographers established in Saint-Henri.
