Architecture, light were soon subjects of great interest to Loeber-Bottero when he became initiated into photography in the middle of the 1970’s. His travels and a two years’ stay in the United States contributed to the maturing of his artistic and photographic approach.
Thanks to the advises of the French artists Annette Faive-Fontanarosa, the painter, and Guy Vivien, the photographer, and after twelve years of deepening and accumulation of photographs, he decides in 2001 to give a public dimension to his work.
From 1988, Venice in Italy becomes a place of choice : the junction of personal destiny and one of the most spectacular expressions of mankind’s creation and beauty’s victory. Since then, Loeber-Bottero starts at one time several photographic projects in Venice : spirituality, materials, night.
Four important exhibitions take place in France between 2001 and 2005, including his first series Venice-Nocturnes in the prestigious Parisian gallery Bernheim-Jeune.
Since 1999, Loeber-Bottero builds up new series in black and white around the portrait, the human body, the portrayal of human body.
Since 2001, he works also on themes and subjects inspired from California and Los Angeles.
Original gelatin silver hand-printings, signed and restricted to 3 or to 20, are proposed for collectors.
