Born in 1949 in Touraine - “The garden of France”-, Jean-Baptiste Leroux is, at very early age, inspired by the Val de Loire’s light as well as it’s architectural heritage. In 1978, he became the artistic director of Nikon Art Gallery in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris. From 1979 to 1989, he runs the Canon Art Gallery in Beaubourg, sharing his passion for photography with his eldest Robert Doisneau, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Lucien Clergue…

The encounter in 1985 in Courances in 1985 with owner Madame de Ganay, leads him to his first garden-photography exhibition which opens the way for the most prestigious properties in France and Europe, Versailles, Vaux-le-Vicomte, Sans Souci, Caserte, La Granja, les jardins des Grimaldi…) as well as King Mohammed VI of Morocco’s one.
