Jean-Luc Mylayne

photo of Jean-Luc Mylayne

Jean-Luc Mylayne was born in Amiens, France in 1946. He has had major solo exhibitions at Barbara Gladstone Gallery, New York, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the Musée d’Art Moderne, Saint-Etienne; the Photographers’ Gallery, London; the ARC/Muse d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; and the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton, Florida.

Though he began working in 1976, Mylayne has created no more than 150 photographs, and each is unique. His photographs are the result of a trusting communal existence between artist and subject, often taking weeks or months to produce just one image. It is through this lengthly commitment to his subject that he is able to ‘script’ every aspect of the scene; the bird, Mylayne explains, becomes the ‘actor’ and he becomes the ‘director.’

During his residency, Mr. Mylayne focused on photographing the Mountain Bluebird, commonly found in New Mexico.
