Romain Osi at a glance
Born in 1980 in Paris, Romain Osi is a member of the cooperative photographic agency Picturetank. Independent photographer, he has exhibited at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, 10th International Havana Biennial, ROOM Gallery London, CCF Berlin, CCF Constantine, Le Cube in Paris, Nuit Blanche Paris, exhibitions in Brazil, Romania, Argentina, Indonesia,…
Romain Osi works with several french institutions, communication, publishing, and french or international press.
Whatever the topic and selected locations – nocturnal wandering on the motorway, part contained, city-cage concrete leaving no place in heaven, or conversely, desert landscape in which nature reclaims its rights – Romain Osi consists of images he has to see as fragments of life taken from the world with pinpoint accuracy.
At night the electric lights and give them a context where uncertainty often arise characters such appearances that were not expected. Photographs are sometimes traversed by light flashes, sometimes filled with an aura green or blue, heralding a new day. Often described as the wandering photographer, Romain Osi opens a window through which hallucinations or fantasized amazing and mysterious place whose decor conducive to the search for truth: truth about ourselves and our environments familiar or strange. The quest of the artist becomes the viewer’s returned to his solitude, his questionings, his aspirations wandering, its utopias. It is a face to face with himself that offers the photographer to the viewer who chooses to cross the corridor with him, this play, this highway, this beach, this sky.
