Born in Santiago de Chile in 1940, Édouard Golbin trained very early in professional photography in Argentina, in one of the main advertising agencies of Buenos Aires.

Later, back in France, where his family was born, he worked for a Parisian agency which enabled him to produce a large number of reports in the most important French industrial companies.

After becoming a freelance photographer, he devoted himself mainly to reports in South America (Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and, in 1998, he participated as a photographer in the Ushuaïa Foundation's expedition to Bolivia). 

His personal editions of postcards and posters (some of which, such as the "cat on the balcony", "Borges" or "class struggle" will be sold in many countries: France, Japan, USA, Italy, Great Britain, Argentina...).

During this same period, he continued to produce reports for well-known companies such as Pechiney, André, UAP, etc.

He also produced a series of photos to illustrate art books such as "Matei Negreanu's Glass Sculptures", "Industrial Images", "Economic Images" and "City Chronicles".  

In recent years, he has turned to the abstract expression of photography. After noticing that some of the dripping dog tracks, which stain the pavements of our cities, offered interesting graphic expressions, he decided to explore this ephemeral source of expression which he calls "Pavement Art".

To honour these anonymous canine 'artists', he imagined Agus Max, a non-conformist artist, whose work he captures on the pavements in the vast studio of the world's city streets. 

With his series "The pavements of Buenos Aires", he offers us seductive images, which remind us of certain works by contemporary painters.

Through the subtlety of the forms and the charm of the colours, the viewer travels within his own sensations.
