Bertrand Le Pautremat was born in Paris (FRANCE). He started to work as a still-life photographer for Advertising. During this time, he began experimenting with the technique of folding paper into abstract patterns, and he conceived the idea of combining his two skills, photography and pleating paper. He now works extensively for both advertising and editorial. Paper is Bertrand Le Pautremat's tool of his own expression, just as others use pencil or paint. The passage of light through different thicknesses of paper, reveals an intricate internal organization of folds, creating subtle variations of light and shadow
