Everything started in India where Guillaume Zuili was travelling between 1986 and 1995. Over there, he fell in love with photography, and this is where his learning began. Artist and photographer, he likes working with silver photography and how it deforms, intervening when taking and developing the photos to create his images.
This journey inspired his first book, which came out in 2003 in the Chêne editions: Pondichéry, Chandernagor, Mahé, Karibal et Yanaon, where he shows his interest in French encounters in India. Exotic names, nostalgia, emotions, adventure and an invitation to take a trip in time and place… We cannot get enough of Guillaume Zuili, who gives us a reinterpretation of this mysterious and fascinating country. He begins to question history and its effects, and this subject later becomes a huge focus point in his work.
After India, Guillaume Zuili begins to tackle urban spaces: he goes to Paris, Berlin and then Moscow. He superimposes images to tell stories and the effects of History on the cities. He even superimposes eras onto his photos. His oeuvre has beautiful composition, giving his style a surrealist feel. Guillaume Zuili creates a world full of dreams in his photography.
