The photographer, Gérard Rancinan, and the author, Caroline Gaudriault are keen observers of our rapidly changing world. The work is unique in its genre. First comes the photographic impact, then the force of the ideas by which the images are underpinned.

Undeniably anchored in the world of contemporary art, the work of Gérard Rancinan and Caroline Gaudriault combines a purist approach to photography with a highly literary sensibility.

The Trilogy of the Moderns is: 7 years of work, 3 parts of a trilogy, 70 photos, 300 models, 3 books, 1 major exhibition that will be toured around the world.

The Trilogy of the Moderns is divided in three parts: the first is “Metamorphoses” presented at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2009, and the second, titled “Hypotheses”, has been presented at the Chapelle Saint-Saveur in Paris in 2011. The trilogy will be on display in its entirety and as a world exclusive from the 4 of May till the 27 May 2012 at La Triennale di Milano.

Gérard Rancinan is a French photographer whose work has appeared in publications such as Sports Illustrated, Time, and Life.

Born in Talence, south-west France near Bordeaux region, Gérard Rancinan started his career at the Sygma press agency of which he became one of the leading lights. During his time with the agency he travelled the globe, bearing first hand witness to events of historical importance. Covering natural catastrophes, civil and ethnic wars, and urban riots, he came face to face with the complexity of the human condition and the random events by which it is fashioned. His thirst for freedom and an imperious need for self-expression rapidly convinced him to go freelance. Reserving himself the right to focus on the world’s most important issues, he delivers startling images filtered through an ever-evolving aesthetic prism.
