Sieff is heralded as one of the great international photographic talents of the last half-century and has left an undeniable imprint on his generation. Prolific in many fields, the variety of his imagery highlights his broad artistry, ranging from fashion, nudes, landscape and portraiture.

With great tenacity, Sieff pursued a personal and highly effective signature style, soaked in playful imagination with a touch of irony. Seldom working in colour he favoured the discipline of black and white, often using to his advantage the spatial distortion of wide-angle lenses, the dramatic potential of shadow and exploitation of tone. Photographer Jeanloup Sieff was known his sensuous black-and-white nudes, portraits of artists and politicians, fashion photography, and surrealist-inflected landscapes.

Influenced by the new-wave filmmakers of the 1950s, Sieff developed a style characterized by clean, modern elegance, capturing long bare backs, sumptuous curves, and ladies' lingerie. "I have always maintained there is no such thing as art, " he once said. There are only artists, producing things that give them pleasure, doing so under some compulsion, perhaps even finding the process painful, but deriving a masochistic joy from it! Sieff worked for Elle and the Magnum Agency, and his work has appeared in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, among other publications.

Jeanloup Sieff was a French photographer. He was born in Paris to Polish parents. He was a photography student of Gertrude Fehr.

[1] He is famous for his portraits of politicians, famous artists, landscapes, as well as for his nudes and use of wide-angle lens and visible dodging marks. He worked mainly in black and white and in fashion. Jeanloup Sieff immerses himself in his pictures, his vision remains the same regardless of the subject.

Black and white is the norm, along with a frequent use of a wide angle lens, distorting perspective. Even though the perspective distortion wide angle lenses prominently feature can render the subject unnatural and distant to us, Sieff's images are imbued with sensitivity and a tenderness that embraces the person depicted. "My pictures are like many little black and white rocks I left here and there in order to find my way back to my teenage years" he would describe later on in his life.

Photogravure Etching Process (Conservation Wiki). A copper plate is dusted with resin powder, then the plate is heated to melt the resin, creating aquatint grain pattern. A thin tissue is coated with gelatin, then sensitized with dichromate.

When this tissue is exposed to light in contact with a positive image, gelatin in the area that receives more light (highlights) becomes more insoluble to water copper plate by pressing the gelatin side of the tissue against the plate. The plate is, then washed with warm water to remove soluble gelatin, leaving a thicker layer in highlights and the area with thicker layer.

The rest is identical to any intaglio printing process. The plate is inked, depositing more ink in the deeply etched areas and less in shallowly etched areas, thus creating tonal range, then printed on paper as positive image... Photogravure registers a wide variety of tones, through the transfer of etching ink from an etched copper plate to special dampened paper run through an etching press.

The unique tonal range comes from photogravure's variable depth of etch, that is, the shadows are etched many times deeper than the highlights. Unlike half-tone processes which vary the size of dot, the depth of ink wells is varied in a photogravure plate. The human eye resolves these fine variations into a continuous tone image...
