Jean-Baptiste Hugo is the son of painter Jean Hugo and a descendant of Victor Hugo. After studying at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Montpellier and in Marseille, he worked in the publishing business while pursuing an amateur career as a painter and photographer. His keen interest for spirituality led him to seek a deeper understanding in India. His photograph series Primaflora is inspired by Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth and its exploration of the imagery of the first flowers. He took the photographs for the book Hauteville House: Victor Hugo décorateur.
