Jean-Marc GODÈS is an artist photographer. His artistic research is entirely dedicated to the promotion of the book through photography. His atypical works are unique internationally. As in the cinema, his theatre productions are real, with furnishings, human and animal actors, costumes, rehearsal, technical assistants… He starts from a project on paper then proceeds to all the stages of the process: constitution of the team, casting, locating the place, creating sets, dressing, make-up, lights, and rehearsals… until the image is taken.

There is no computer editing involved.

On the borders of the real and the imaginary, Jean Marc GODÈS’s photographic productions meet the interest of audiences of all ages. His photographs arouse strong desire to continue the course of stories that are stopping on the images. Starting from these moments suspended in time, many writing works have been done.

His exhibitions and photographic staging workshops are held regularly in France in libraries, media libraries, book fair, poetry fair; but also in Switzerland, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Romania, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Finland, Lithuania, Guinea and China.

At the crossroads of art, photography, poetry and literature, the social and cultural utility of Jean Marc GODÈS’s photographs is at the center of his concerns. To translate this need, he regularly conducts experiments in the following directions: libraries, school environment, fight against illiteracy, poetry, disability…
