Jean-François Lepage was born in Paris, France in 1960. His photography first appeared in the magazine Depeche Mode in 1981 and he held his first personal exhibition in 1983. In the 90s, Lepage dedicated himself to painting while continuing his photographic experiments. Returning to fashion photography at the beginning of the 21st century, his timeless uncanny images appeared in numerous international publications and were the subject of a retrospective in 2013 at the 28th Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography. MOONLIGHT ZOO, Lepage’s first monograph was released in 2015 and shows a selection of his photographs published in magazines from 1983 to present (Prestel Publishing). Since 2014, Jean-François Lepage has devoted himself exclusively to fine art photography and painting. He develops his RECYCLE project, reinterpreting films and photographic prints from his archives. The first opus PRELUDE has been completed in 2017 and pieces from the series were exhibited in Paris, Amsterdam, Brugge, Liège, Istanbul and London.
