About The Artwork

Manipulated black & white photograph Emmanuel Gimeno originally shot this series on film 20 years ago. More recently, Gimeno replaced the film's technical inscription with its new title, "You Don't Own Me"... plus some additional comments. This intrusive shot is a reminder of the way girls and women are being stared at; up and down. On this series, he says," I often try to create a shortfall and hope to bring up the possible underlying emotion. I always hated the way many men perceive women; the way they look at them, the way they talk about them. the way they treat them. I love watching women expressing resistance these days. Women have their own dark places that probably go beyond men's imagination. This is what fascinates me the most, especially when society has been projecting so much of what men want to see out of them. Raw nudity in darkness is telling that intimacy goes way deeper than a naked body.

“I became a photographer because I can not live with the idea of experiencing beautiful moments only once. I love to see and feel these moments of time indefinitely, over and over again”. Emmanuel Gimeno was born in France and studied high academic and visual arts technique at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Troyes, France. He graduated with honors in 1990 with a thesis exclusively composed with photography; which since then became his medium of choice. He lived between Paris and New York for more than 20 years, conducting work of conceptual art, fashion photography and international creative direction consulting. As a great admirer of Gilles Deleuze, he also believes Art is an act of resistance before being any kind of communication tool. He always preserves his disruptive visions which have brought him both great achievements as well as intriguing rejections. "Some of my best work lies in my rejection drawer". In 2016, Emmanuel Gimeno was awarded by PX3, Paris Photography Prize, won the 1X-One Exposure Prize (abstract category) in early 2017, and was selected by The Kuandu International Animation Festival of Taiwan for his short animation movie "Crush it and disappear". Most known for his work of image sequences, fragmented-cut negatives and multiple exposure techniques, Emmanuel Gimeno's approach teases the viewer with his shifted contemplations.
