«  Interior architecture »


Far from the social issues of my urban series,  I concurrently launched a more introspective work.  These eight photographs symbolise life's itineraries. They can be looked upon as images of inner reflection; that of the artist, of the viewer, of everyone.

The vanishing-point images are perturbed by a set of pixels. Why? This central space evokes the unknown of every being. The murky zone represents all that we keep secret. It's in this part of the image that the unknown unconscious is revealed.

The single pixel, on the other hand, shows a determination, a direction, a choice. It embodies the free will that everyone seems able to, to some extent, have on his life. This image of a "free spirit"  is a reminder of the ambivalence of human nature.
