Born in 1960, Didier Goupy makes his first images in Morocco. The photographs he made in Ireland in 1984 and in Egypt in 1985 are immediately published in Photo Magazine and Photo Reporter. He settles in Paris in 1986, became a professional photographer and began a collaboration with the Bayard Presse group. He joined the Sygma agency in 1991.
It is in India where he will make several trips between 1993 and 2001 that reveals his passion for the portrait and the color foundation of his work as a photographer which will result in various series or collaborations.
Today, Didier Goupy continues his personal work on space in a close relationship to painting. Very sensitive to Mark Rothko’s work, Paul Cézanne, Georges Braque and Pierre Bonnard, he focuses on understanding the relationship between the figure and abstraction by color so as to create a space of mystery and meditation. The forest (The Foundations) is the founding site of his research work.
