Whenever he photographs, films, draws,or writes, Hugues Anhes seeks to look at the world with an unblinking authentic eye, able to depict both difference and indifference.
Hugues Anhes uses photography as a medium which allows his subects to reveal themselves. Through their eyes he touches souls in their intimacy to expose part in all of us which is universal.
With his in-situ art project he named "Affichez-Vous" (Show yourself up) Hugues Anhes gives a pretext for people who never met to change their point of view about each other and themselves.
Hugues Anhes’s technique is to make portraits of different people which are then printed and superposed on each other. He then scratches and alters these surface and revealing and mixing differences making us reflect on what is the same and different.
His installations build cultural bridges and provide us with a reflection of who we are as human beings and contribute to creating a new collective consciousness.
