Jérôme Tanon is 32 years old, was born in Paris and lives in Annecy. Jérôme has been a snowboard photographer for the past ten years, an active member of the community. Learning by himself, in 2008/2009 he switched from digital to shooting solely on film with old cameras. Creative in the darkroom, his timeless and intimate creations are easily spotted, with a typical grain and black and white look. He is mostly known for his works with double exposures, silver-gelatin lith prints, bromoils and etchings. His photographs are exhibited regularly and published in snowboard magazines all around the world. Besides his personal projects such as “Emperor” and “Singes”, in 2016 Jérôme released a self-produced documentary with zero budget : “The Eternal Beauty Of Snowboarding”, an instant classic reaching more than a million views on Youtube. His first professional film “ZABARDAST”, an epic freeride expedition in the Karakoram, is to be released in fall 2018. The multi-talented artist keeps working on what he loves without compromise.
