Jérôme Sainte Rose is an atypical photographer if there is one, who has been photographing for many years the movement of his passions to the rhythm of his emotions. His photos have an obvious link with the ethnic admiration of distant tribes. The artist observes the real as through life. His art is warm and bubbling with strong vibrations, the opposite of hyperrealism which photographs with a cold virtuosity. Images of conquests where the strength of his vision is mixed. The colors are frank, powerful, energizing, often melted in a psychedelic decor, magnifying the subject, as if to glorify the seized moment and inscribe an expression in eternity. An almost hypnotic eye that transports in the magic of his look. His imagination brings to surrealism a very particular atmosphere between fusion and light. The artist is gifted with an aesthetic emotional intensity certainly linked to a rich and intense life that transports in its dimension.
