"My philosophy is to have a really good time and never to let anything stop me from doing what I want to do."

Fotodokumentation

                    


Der Bretone Guy Le Querrec kam am 12. Mai 1941 in Paris zur Welt. Mit 14 Jahren begann er zu fotografieren, 1962 kaufte er seine erste Leica Fotokamera Typ 3G, von gesparten Geld, das er durch die Arbeit bei einem Versicherungsunternehmen verdient hatte. Im Alter von 26 Jahren begann seine Karriere als professioneller Fotograf für die Pariser Werbeagentur Atelier 3. 1969 bereiste er zwei Jahre lang für die Wochenzeitschrift Jeune Afrique regelmäßig das frankophone Schwarzafrika sowie die Länder des Maghreb.

1971 schloss sich Le Querrec der Agentur VU an, im darauffolgenden Jahr begründete er die Agentur Viva mit, die er jedoch bereits 1975 wieder verließ. Zu dieser Zeit entstanden Serien wie «Die Familie in Frankreich» (1973), «Portugal und die Nelkenrevolution» (1974-75) und «Franzosen in den Ferien» (1976).

1976 trat er MAGNUM bei, und wurde dort 1977 als Vollmitglied aufgenommen. Herausragende Publikationen damals: Das «Concert Mayol» in Paris (1979) und «Big Foot Gedächtnisritt» in South Dakota - Vereinigte Staaten (1990). Zwischen 1984 und 1998 hatte er längerfristige Engagements in China und in zahlreichen afrikanischen Ländern. in den späten Siebzigern und frühen Achtzigern fotografierte LQ mehrfach den verstorbenen französischen Staatspräsidenten Francois Mitterand im Elysée-Palast. Diese Portraitssitzungen fanden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Bildhauer Daniel Druet statt. Eine Fotografie aus dieser Serie wurde 1999 in die Auswahl der «100 Bilder des Jahrhunderts» aufgenommen. 1998 wurde Le Querrec Preisträger des «Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris».

In Le Querrecs Leben spielt die Musik, besonders der Jazz, eine große Rolle; und hat auch in seinem Werk einen bedeutenden Stellenwert. So führte er im Rahmen der «Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d'Arles» im «Théâtre Antique» zwei Performances auf: «De l'eau dans le jazz» (1983) und zehn Jahre später «Jazz comme une image». Bei letzterem dienten Fotografien, die auf eine riesige Leinwand projeziert wurden, als Partitur für improvisierte Musiksessions. 1998 konnte er die Bilderserie «Jazz comme une image» während des «Banlieues Bleues» Festivals für fünf Wochen in den Pariser Métro-Stationen präsentieren.

Raymond Depardon, künstlerischer Direktor der «Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d'Arles» 2006, wählte Le Querrec als einen seiner «Weggefährten» aus. Le Querrecs Aufführungen «L'oeil de l'éléphant» und «Root africaine» touren bis heute durch Frankreich, Belgien, Holland, Ungarn, Spanien, Italien und Deutschland.

Neben seinem Schaffen als Fotograf lehrt und lehrte Le Querrec an Bildungseinrichtungen sowohl in seiner Heimat als auch im Ausland, etwa in der Schweiz, im Senegal, in der Mongolei, in England und Kanada.
