Jean Marc La Roque was born in Cherbourg, a seaport in Normandy, north west France. He has worked as a professional photographer for the last 35 years and has lived in Melbourne since the late 70’s. He is an award-winning photographer and has extensive experience in the Asia-Pacific region. Specialised in large scale industrial, shipping and architectural photography and very successful in commercial photography and corporate portraits, his landscapes are very graphic with an abstract quality, perfectly reflecting the intensity of the Australian light. He often includes large scale industrial elements within these landscapes to give a sense of scale and place. Jean Marc Laroque is represented in Europe by Monteoliveto Gallery from 2013 in many art events and fairs in Nice, Paris, Milan, Principality of Monaco and in the island of Capri; his works will be soon exhibited in 2020-2021 in the Milan edition of #Through Your Lens Photography exhibition. Jean Marc Laroque captures the feeling of the natural world and shows the visual harmony that can exist between human and natural components. He constantly explores the ways that beauty can be found in industrial settings. This work often takes him to physically challenging and remote areas, which allows the viewer to have access to the beauty of these inhospitable areas. Jean Marc Laroque has also exhibited in New York, Paris, Florence, Milan and Melbourne and has received numerous international photography awards in Fine Art, Landscape, Commercial, Advertising, many of his large-scale works have been commissioned by clients in Australia and internationally for corporate offices and private homes.
