Freelance photographer and author, Hélène Hubert studied Fine Art photography in Maine, USA in the early 1980s at the Art Institute of Boston. This is how the artist discovered Ansel Adams Zone-System and implemented it to her photographic practice and work philosophy. As early as 1998, the photographer fitted her view-camera with digital backs replacing the 4”x5” analogic film holder. Hélène Hubert has been using digital cameras ever since, positioning digital photography as a mirror of all the energies that circulate beyond human vision.
Her skill for highlighting everyday objects has asserted itself over the years: silhouettes, shadows and allusions of presence suggest the existence of parallel worlds where distortion, dreamlike and dual meaning prevail. At the heart of Hélène Hubert's work, the object becomes a subject gifted with a life of its own, permeable to sight. Freed from the constraints of documenting reality, the photographer is caught by the need to freeze impermanence, in all passageways or moments of transition, to experiment and give us the opportunity to see the multiple parallel worlds that we cross.
