Jean Luc Mylayne
Essays by Lynne Cooke and Terrie Sultan
For more than thirty years, Jean Luc Mylayne has been photographing the birds of his native France and the American West. The creation of each images is a laborious process which can take months as Mylayne returns to the same location, day after day. Mylayne asserts that the birds, he particularly focuses on bluebirds, are willing actors in the making of the picture. The book features essays by Blaffer Gallery director Terrie Sultan, as well as Lynne Cooke.
“When I see a bird, I see at the same time that bird on a tree near the house. I see everything as an ensemble, and I realize that’s how I see everything in life.” — Jean Luc Mylayne, Marfa, Texas, 2006
