“Chronophoto” by Jean-Yves Lemoigne

“Chronophoto” by Jean-Yves Lemoigne 8

Jean-Yves Lemoigne created quite a few stunning multiple exposures of tennis star Louis Fabre in action – in camera, with no postproduction.

When it was first invented in the 19th century, chronophotography (a technique used to capture a subject’s movement in one or several frames) was mostly used for scientific purposes to study people and animals.

Used now, applied to the serves and strokes of Louis Fabre in Jean-Yves Lemoigne’s photographs for BKRW Magazine, the technique functions to reveal, in astonishing detail, the grace and artistry of those who play the game.
