Stéphane Couturier  (French, 1957) 

whitespace
Stéphane Couturier (French, b.1957) is a photographer who specializes in large-scale images of factories, cities, and urban landscapes. His works are often overlapping and time-lapsed images, which create distorted, though recognizable, pictures of the cities around us. His series Melting Point (2006) exemplifies this, as it is both a documentation of a 21st-century car manufacturing factory and a representation of Contemporary Abstract photography.

Couturier has exhibited regularly since the early 2000s, including a major retrospective in 2004 at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. His work has been published in several monographs, including Landscaping (2002), Stéphane Couturier-Photographies (2004), Melting Point (2006), and Chandigarh Replay (2007). The artist’s work can be viewed at institutions such as Centre Georges Pompidou, Los Angeles County Museum, National Gallery of Canada, Grand-Duc Jean Museum in Luxembourg, and the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2003, he was awarded the Prix Niépce.

Couturier is represented internationally by the Gallery Polaris and Les Douches, La Galerie in Paris, the Laurence Miller Gallery in New York, and the Van Kranendonk Gallery in Den Haag, Netherlands.
