Alain Le Chapelier became immersed in the art of photography at a very young age. Indeed, it was with the family camera equipment that he took his first pictures, developing his films, pulling them under the enlarger in the home laboratory. This passion for taking pictures, driven by his instinctive curiosity, has accompanied him throughout life, and particularly during his travels. As he grew older, Le Chapelier furthered his relationship with photography by experimenting with composition, and examining how we communicate through images. The black and white works of Humanist photographers such as Brassaï, Henri Cartier Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Raymond Depardon, Willy Ronis, Sebastiao Salgado and Paolo Pellegrin are his greatest source of inspiration.
