THE PHOTOGRAPHER AND GRAPHIC DESIGNER
The photos of Jeremy Kapone's drawings as well as the book's layout were created by ANNA MARCHLEWSKA, who has been working with the Association Quatre Couleurs for several years. ANNA MARCHLEWSKA is a graphic designer and photographer of Polish origin who lives and works in Paris. After five years of study at the Beaux-Arts de Paris, she enriched her experience by collaborating with several luxury and ready-to-wear houses as a graphic designer and photographer.
In 2012, she completely changed her life: she left a comfortable job as a visual identity manager to become a freelance in communication and visual identity. Her credo: dare to live her life and take control of her destiny! Her motto: "simplicity in the service of elegance and refinement".
The ESCOURBIAC PRINTERY was created in 1963 in Graulhet by Michel Escourbiac, then an orchestra musician. The trumpeter, who was passionate about photography, quickly became a specialist in photo books. In 1997, the printing house was taken over by his son Philippe, who was joined a few years later by his brother Alain, who was in charge of the commercial side in Paris.
The Escourbiac printing company obtained Imprim'vert certification in 2003. Three times winner of the Cadrat d'or (2003/2009/2014) Escourbiac is now out of the competition: a printing company cannot obtain more than three such awards. The printing works has doubled its production area in 2019, thanks to a new building entirely covered with photovoltaic panels.
STÉPHANE GUILBAUD studied at the Fine Arts School in Paris and started working as a lithographer at the Atelier Desjobert in Paris in 1979. For fifteen years, he was the head of the Atelier Arts Litho, where he offered his expertise to numerous artists, gallery owners and international publishers, particularly American and Chinese. He has worked alongside contemporaries such as Zao Wou Ki, Pierre Alechinsky, Oliver Debré, Francis Bacon, Arman... A member of the Grands Ateliers de France, Stéphane Guilbaud continues to pursue this same energy today, having had the honour in 2010 of receiving the title of Master of Art; he also strives to train those who will bear the very special responsibility of accompanying a work of art, an image in the making.
Under the luminous stone vaults of the prestigious Viaduc des Arts, in the heart of the twelfth arrondissement of Paris, the Atelier dedicates its space and its know-how to printmaking techniques. On stone, metal or wood, with a hand press or from the top of the hundred-year-old Voirin press and its 80 x 120 cm format, a whole part of the history of art printing is on display. It is also, and above all, in order to be at the service of today's contemporary creation.
