Seb Janiak Art

French, b. 1966

Seb Janiak is a photographic artist whose work explores conditions in which opposites can co-exist, revealing the visual characteristics of the hidden forces that shape the physical universe. He creates images that blend science with creativity and analytics with the poetic. He lives and works in Paris, France. Janiak began his career as a graphic designer. While freelancing, he engaged with state-of-the-art technology, becoming a pioneer in the field of digital photography. His work gained him global attention, and he expanded into music video directing, fashion photography, and finally into fine art. Since 2009, he has focused on expanding the potential of contemporary analog photography and has only used basic photographic tools. Janiak says, “I only allow myself the techniques which have been used in analog photography since 1850. Namely, making adjustments to contrast and exposure, and using superimposition.” When a special effect is needed to achieve a particular shot, he finds a way to achieve it manually rather than through digital manipulation, for example by using refraction (a prism) or reflectivity (a mirror). The fantastical images Janiak produces may seem impossible, but they are in fact pictures of the physical world that surrounds us at all times. Janiak is interested in duality and the unseen forces that inhabit the space between what we perceive of as imaginative and as scientific. His work thus serves as a photographic bridge between data and creativity. Janiak believes there is no separation between science and art. The apparent dichotomy is only a way of conceptualizing the multiple simultaneous states of being at work in the visible universe. Whether his inspiration comes from a philosophical inquiry, a spiritual question, or a revelation about the nature of physics, in the end, he circles back to all three areas of thought, using one as a departure point, but in the process capturing what is beautiful about all. French designer Philippe Starck wrote, “Seb has shown that the impossible can be achieved. . . .He has done a lot (that is to say he has committed himself completely) to try to draw us into poetic spaces, with a rigor that sets him apart from his successors. Each of his images, each of his artistic gestures, has elegance and madness which are both natural and structural. I will forever be grateful to him for this reason, how many artists can be said to bring our dreams and visions so strongly to life that they are with us every day?” Janiak’s work is widely collected and has been exhibited globally, including at Art Basel Miami and FIAC.
