As a filmmaker, Guiraudie is classified in the comic field. And his films are gay, or they very often tell about gays. Guiraudie prefers to make films about ordinary people, he is a regionalist, if there is still a France profonde today, you can see it in his work.
How does the intricate humanism of his films translate into the photographs? There are motivic echoes of the terse pictorial compositions on which his slapstick is often based.
But Guiraudie also shows himself in his photographs simply as a contemplative observer. Gladly in semi-dark, nocturnal scenes. Not everything has to serve as an approach to a story, to a dramaturgical idea, to a spinning on, certainly not as a moment that could become a gag. It's a little like watching him photograph an exercise that allows him to let his busy mind settle down for once. And yet every picture contains the potential for excess. But this is probably also due to the medium of photography as such.
