Thierry Bansront grew up in England and moved to Paris when he was 18. His studies of the classics in literature and art history profoundly influenced his profession as a photographer. Bansront’s distinctive artistic production is a tribute to neoclassical paintings, moving away from the modern style of representing women in favour of a return to the grace and genteel manners of the heroines of the past. The photographs from the Neoclassical series attracted the attention of the press, and in 2015 the pictures were published in L’œil de la photographie and Vogue. Bansront started taking pictures in 2012, flanking photo portraits with a pictorial air and fashion photography. His ability to use light and colours to construct sets that highlight the beauty of the models is a legacy from the past in which he played a leading role in the animation industry. At the start of his career he drew cartoons – both still and animated – for the daily La liberté du Morbihan. In the early Nineties he began a six-year collaboration with Delphine Software and Quantic Dream, respectively a French association and company that produce and distribute videogames. At the same time, over the years he worked in postproduction, creating animated works for the feature film T’choupi, the TV series Nidouille and Franky Snow, and various advertising campaigns, including those of H&M, Opel and Swiss Delice. Bansront currently lives and works in Usez, in southern France.
