"Black and white allows me to go beyond appearances to meet the mystery, the silence, the interiority. It is for me an open door to enchantment. "

Born in Paris, Philippe Kohn started photography by reporting and making social essays. A freelance photographer for 11 years, he then worked for the press and communication. He then joined the Rapho agency where he created and directed the corporate department for 12 years. In his personal work, he progressively detaches himself from a journalistic vision and moves away from the city to survey natural territories alone. He produced the series "Haute Lumière" in the domain of the Saint-Guénolé monastery in Brittany and "Terre d'ardoise": a land that men have dug for centuries to extract slate, leaving immense vertical walls bare.

Other images follow, made in the different rooms of his house: "Au plus près" is a tribute to the transfiguration brought by the light when it settles on our daily life.
