Jerome De Perlinghi Jerome De Perlinghi internationally published Belgium photographer captures moments in time with his portraits. Previously exhibited only in Europe, “Symphony of Portraits” showcases over 100 B/W images of actors, directors, musicians, and singers such as Jose Carreras, Vahina Giocante, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and Otis Rush. Also on exhibit is “Installation of a Photographer,” a grouping of historic film cameras from De Perlinghi’s private collection. His photographs have been printed in American and European newspapers and magazines, including Liberation, Le Monde, The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and Telerama. He has published six books, and his works are in the permanent collections of The Library of Congress, La Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and le Musee de la Photographie of Charleoi in Belgium.

Laurent Abadjian, editor in chief of

Telerama in Paris, shares his view of De Perlinghi’s work, “A portrait is not a picture of a woman or a man. It is something else. Something more. The ‘more’ here, is the photographer. He is the master of this strange ceremony: the unusual ceremony of the portrait. A portrait indeed is a meeting between the one who shoots the photo and the one who will pose. In the end, it is not the image of the woman or man who will be recorded on film. But the image of their relationship that has developed: it is this universe of the photographer interacting with the shadows and the light surrounding the portrayed. The choice of frame, moment, light devices or technical choices of films are determined by the photographer.

Directing actors, it is he, the photographer, who is in charge. Jerome De Perlinghi over the festivals of Deauville, Montreal and elsewhere, behind the scenes of the Belgian Film Archives and his encounters with artists all over, was able to win, with great kindness and infinite determination, the trust of those who agreed to spend a few minutes with him. More exactly in front of him, between his canvas, his soft light box and his 6X6 Yashica Mat. He knew how to seduce by using frankness and tenacity but never trying to flatter nor to deceive. Everyone knew where he – or she was going with it and agreed to play this game of balance of power, leaving him in charge to build another image of themselves: unique, different and free.�
