Romain Berger Exhibition

Inspired by the work of photographer David LaChapelle and the colorful aesthetics of filmmaker Gregg Araki, Romain Berger’s work, gently provocative and cinematic, is distinguished by its excessive use of color.

Born from the influence of Parisian nightclubs he frequented in his youth, this color is an essential component of his artistic expression. Despite the gravity of some subjects he addresses, it also helps to soften the harshness of the message.

Romain does not seek raw reality but prefers to fantasize life scenes with a personal aesthetic, thus embellishing his vision of the world. His openly homoerotic pieces are a bold challenge to the patriarchal order, long characterized by the conception of women as sexual objects and men as virile figures.

His artistic approach oscillates between light and more serious subjects, guided by his current desires. Romain creates without constraints, capturing images close to those of a film, while defying conventional expectations. What he loves is telling stories and magnifying his models by staging them in sets he creates himself. Playing with clichés and superficiality is a source of pleasure in his creation.

In 2022, his first photo book, “Life’s a Cabaret,” was published by Men On Paper Art, retracing three years of his career. He was also featured in the German book “Sex Utopia” alongside renowned artists (Pierre et Gilles / Bruce La Bruce). Although his work is regularly exhibited and published abroad, he faces some reluctance in French galleries due to its unconventional nature.

His work will be presented in Spain for the second time in five years. From July 5 to 26, he will exhibit “Just a Little Love” at the Axel Hotel in Barcelona.
