Often, to live in a place, a city, is to forget it as one lives there! I made this observation by talking here and there.
Alicante in Spain, where I realize exclusively my photographs, is, often, a noisy city!
Multiple cultures "crash", resonate and live together. It is a place of extraordinary emotions.
Give to feel, Give to discover, Give to see these sensations suggested, here or there, by the street, the places, the things, the landscapes and, the people who surprise, astonish and live, are for me essential requirements.
I like to suggest these multiple, ordinary or extraordinary lives, the real or supposed freedoms of those places and lives that intersect.
By "disguising" the reality of my photographs, suggesting an "essential detail" here or there,proposing an expression "original"; I suggest some other universes or interpretations!
These are the realities of our respective memories that must prevail.
I only wish to propose!
"...My photographs are an urban sub-scenography, a scenic indication completing the flow without pertaining to it...
... In them appear simple signs of life, skimming the surface of an urban façade, detailing the silhouette of nameless internal lives... A real public hide-and-seek of abstract and innocuous details emphasized through a different, singular and creative gaze...
...Each detail present acts as a collection of anonymous and fleeting signatures... "
« ...I feel like "poet", I have been a photographer for several decades.
Today, new writing, new approach, true freedom of movement, I move in the worlds that are changing ....
I write stories with my smartphone! I capture "things" with another sensitivity …
I used « sténopé », polaroid, I practiced the argentic, I use today my digital SLR camera and my smartphone!
I do not feel any limit in my expression, only that of vulgarity or hatred …
I sometimes say that the photographic report is like a dance .... you have to learn the movement … »
Subtle, delicate, humble, .. honest, this is JC Pratt!
He knows how to understand and conjugate lights, facts and "poetry"
These photographs give no lesson, they are there, and yet they challenge us, seduce us.
Urban, Rural, Vegetal, "littoral", his photographs do not judge us; he gives us to receive what he sees!
He possesses, it is undeniable, this gift ".. A la fin de l'envoi, je touche …"
These photographs accompany us a long time, always, with simplicity, but obviously!

Curious, he is fascinated by what he does not see and which appears from being observed."
I like to watch. I make a big difference between seeing and looking.See, it's passive.
Watching allows you to go beyond form ".
However, Jean Pierre Fleury is not satisfied to look at the world, he probes it removing the layers which cover it.
Like Alice, the character of Lewis Caroll, the artist walks through the looking glass.
He does not photograph what he sees but what he feels, what appears to him, what he discovers behind appearances.
Besides, is he a photographer?
He looks more like a painter; his camera serves as his brush.His images are like abstract paintings, doors to the imagination.
He plays with blur, juggles with shadows and opens up new worlds to us.
