Jean-Baptiste Le Mercier is a photographer currently living in Toronto. He has previously worked in Paris for different magazines. As a portraitist, he likes to take pictures in studio but also outside with a “documentary approach”.
Interested by people in their environment and how they react to one another, he likes to improvise “in situ” portraits: be open to improvisation and find with his subjects how they would like to be seen. His exhibition Cinema Faces captures the highlights of the presence of French cinema at TIFF, in which French projects and French talents play a major part, through a series of portraits of iconic directors, actors and producers.
Cinema Faces is taking place during the European Union Film Festival and is co-organised by EUFF, UniFrance, the Consulate General of France in Toronto and the Alliance Française of Toronto.
