A stranger: Paris, Subway, Station La Fourche

    Newer Older

    View On Black

    Démarche:
    Interroger le monde moderne dans lequel on vit et tenter de briser l'individualisme et l’anonymat de la grande ville. En allant dans des Non-lieux (métro, centre commercial, rue passante à l’heure de pointe) et en demandant à des étrangers de les prendre en photo, je brise pour quelques instants le fonctionnement habituel de ce monde moderne. Je rend ces Non-lieux existants en y créant un événement dont l’étranger va se souvenir.

    Approach to photography:
    Questioning the modern world in which we are living and trying to break this individualism and the anonymity of the big city. By going into “Non-lieux” (no existing places) (subways, malls, and crowded streets at rush hours …;) and by talking to people to take photos, I break the usual way this modern world works for a few instants. I make real these “non-lieux” by creating an event that the stranger will remember.

      oué bon Francis je le connais, il est vachement poilu quand même...
      je dis ça je dis rien, mais faut aimer jouer de la machette avant d'arriver aux zones érogènes.

      Ceci dit Benoit, j'ai un copain à Porto qui peut te préter un rotofil si tu veux.
