Since the birth of photography, America is an endless source of inspiration. Maison Française Magazine gives you its favorites of the moment: images of artists whose original look manages to renew the genre.

The least we can say is that American photography is on the rise. Remarkable exhibitions dedicated to Garry Winogrand or William Eggleston were recently organized at the Jeu de Paume and at the Fondation CartierBresson, and the last Paris Photo Salon was full of pictures taken on the other side of the Atlantic.

In addition to the beautiful pictures of the inevitable William Klein (at extremely reasonable prices if you consider the reputation of the artist, rush!), We have selected here three singular looks that intrigue, seduce and captivate. James Casebere is one of the first to have photographed architectural models. The result is landscapes with pop colors between dream and reality, where cities and houses have a delicious scent of childhood. Gail Albert Halaban captures small moments of life and intimacy in the gigantism of skyscrapers. Finally, Gregory Crewdson's universe - from foggy or snowy landscapes to interiors of apartments or hotel rooms populated by strange characters - is eminently cinematographic.

Gregory Crewdson, Untitled (Blind Reflection), 2007, 6 copies + 2 EA. From 48000 to 73000euros according to the format, Templon gallery.

Philippe Béasse's America

Many non-American photographers are also interested in America. First passionate about black and white, French Philippe Béasse (born in 1995) has discovered the charm of color by contemplating the clichés of Saul Leiter (1923-2013). Away from the galleries circuit, he develops a work of incredible sensitivity. Let yourself be seduced by his silent visions of deep America or the immense national parks, but also by the glance that it carries on New York, which it strides in the early morning in the cold of the winter, capturing the moments Stealth of real life in the magical atmosphere of the still almost deserted streets.

Where to find them?

The Daniel Templon Gallery defends Gregory Crewdson and James Casebere. A reference address in contemporary photography, where you will also find images of stars such as Pierre and Gilles or David LaChapelle. 30, rue Beaubourg, 75003 Paris.

The dynamic gallery The Lamppost represents William Klein and twenty other talented photographers, from Arièle Bonzon to Alain Fleischer, through Rip Hopkins, François Deladerrière and Bernard Plossu. 38, rue Burdeau, 69001 Lyon.

The Esther Woerdehoff Gallerypresents an exhibition of works by Gail Albert Halaban from March 24 to May 2. 36, rue Falguière, 75015 Paris. Also noteworthy is the recent publication by Gail Albert Halaban, Vis-à-Vis, published by La Martinière (55euros)

To see and buy Philippe Béasse's photographs, go directly to his website (photographs-philippebeasse.com), where are gathered all his work.

How to hang them?

Whatever your budget (from a few hundred euros to tens of thousands), the possibilities to acquire a beautiful shot signed, limited edition or very limited (3 or 5 copies), are numerous. Be wary of websites and specialty shops that offer art photography at prices that are certainly attractive but whose circulation (in all formats and formats) often exceeds the required criteria, ie 30 copies maximum. Once your work is purchased, you can present it under glass - classic frame or window frame - or expose it simply laminated on an aluminum plate to the exact dimensions of the image. We rather recommend this solution which allows a direct look on the photograph, without the reflections inherent to the presence of a glass.
