Denis Brihat has his own conception of what a photographic print is and what his work intimately represents.

Each of the photographic paintings is unique, which places them on equal footing with painting itself.

This choice does't conform to normal photographic practice whereby a negative could be used to make an indefinite number of prints. So at the start of the 1970s, Denis Brihat drew the logical conclusions of his work and adopted an approach that had hitherto been little explored, namely that of limiting the number of prints.

His process is lengthy and highly technical. For each image, he made between 3 and 12 prints according to the format in a single session. This was in keeping with the material conditions and constraints within which he was operating.

There are finally few cases in the world of photography where the characteristics of a work and the desire to control the scarcity of a work find also naturally in phase...

Denis Brihat's photographic research gives great importance to the work of the hand; and this is why it invites comparisons with painting and drawing. But his art is also eminently photographic. The perception, the capture of the world by the lens and his interpretation in the darkroom are the vehicles of his creativity.

D'après Didier Brousse dans le livre "Les métamorphoses de l'argentique"
