Born 1954, Boissy-l’Aillerie, France. Lives and works between Sarthe and Paris, France.
Trained as an architect, Patrick Tosani began practicing photography in the 1980s. Always in the form of series, his work is affiliated with the “New Objectivity” movement, characterized by a minimalist aesthetic, close to that of the Dusseldorf School. His typologies (Talons, 1987, les Têtes, 1992, Vêtements, 1997) put large format photography in service of “sculptural” representations of his subjects.
