Gilbert Garcin

Gilbert Garcin was born in La Ciotat, close to Marseille, in 1929. After the degree in economics, he directed a company of import-export of light devices. Once retired, being 65 years old, he won a photographic price and therefore followed a workshop at the Rencontres d’Arles of that year, discovering the great potential of photomontage, which later will be the focus of his work.
He lives and works in Marseille, France.
In the last 15 years Gilbert Garcin published several books and participated to many exhibitions. Following his will of sharing his vision of life with everyone, his work was exposed worldwide and is present in many public and private collections, such as: Fonds national pour l’art Contemporain, France; Fonds Communal pour l’art Contemporain de Marseille, Marseille; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; Artothèque de Veendam, the Netherlands; Artothèque de Nantes, Nantes; Artothèque de Vitré, Vitré; Médiathèque de Miramas, Miramas; Fondation Regards de Provence, Marseille; Galerie du Château d’Eau, Toulouse; and the West Collection, Philadelphia.
