Cyrille Druart ; The world as I see it

Cyrille Druart / French Photographers
Cyrille Druart / French Photographers

I record Life. The world as I see it. My aim is not to show things as they are. I want to modify them, extract them from reality to give them a new dimension in relation to real life, or completely offset. I’m not looking for folklore, but for a kind of underlying truth. I try to create single images, independent of each other.I’m often told that my training as an architect is reflected in my photographs. I like to show the human being surrounded and confronted to what he built. Lost in an immensity or surrounded by material. In any case I seek the trace of a passage, of a story. It is very interesting to look for these signs in a city. Even if seen as cold and impersonal, it carries the traces of human choices. Nothing is left to chance, everything is the result of a planned and thoughtful collective work. And when the space is left blank, it is still a choice. More……

Above all, I craved to seize the whole essence, in the confines of one single photograph, of some situation that was in the process of unrolling itself before my eyes.

Histoire d’Ô by Arnaud Bertrande

Secure path
Arnaud Bertrande / French Photographers

I recently started a job “Histoire d’Ô”, which presents a series of long exposures taken around the theme of water.
Discovering the long exposure, I found the opportunity to work abstraction, loss of marks. A part of me can express itself through this technique, everything which concerned in escape, purity, dream trip. This work on white, on white light represents for me an opening on the poetry, a passage to somewhere else exotic, softer, smoother, more peaceful. More….

Half the sky Serie by Floriane de Lassée

Floriane De Lassée / French Photographers
Floriane De Lassée / French Photographers

In her photographic work, Floriane highlights women who carry the World. In a environment sometimes harsh, this serie put forward women who give a new dimension and humanity to space. Between tradition and modernity, in megacities or more remote areas where the photographer has been between 2010 and 2013, each of these individuals work to get out of themselves, sometimes in a perceptibly solitude. The “Half the Sky” series has been supported by the Mécénat de L’Oréal.   More….

Jean Bastien Lagrange : Sous la Lampe

Jean Bastien Lagrange / French Photographers
Jean Bastien Lagrange / French Photographers

Jean Bastien Lagrange is a Paris based photographer with a serious sense of place and style. A combination of attentiveness and curiosity culminated in his keen eye for creating and capturing his signature photographic situations. His point of departure is characteristically ambiguous often with a dichotomous perspective, highlighting both the absurd and the serious simultaneously. The purpose of Lagrange’s ongoing series ‘Sous la Lampe’ is an investigation. An intimate investigation that goes well beyond the form or face of the subject, it aims to glean a glance into the persona and emotive conditioning of the individual. The philosophy contained in the work is to illustrate a collector’s obsession with an object, it is the near criminal urge of these collectors to practice their acquisition which comes under the spotlight in these images. More…..

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.

Til All Is Correct by Louise Fago-Ruskin

Til All Is Correct by Louise Fago-Ruskin

I like to think of my Great Uncle Moszek hovering  somewhere between floors 8 and 12 of Nalewki Street  9 in the Warsaw ghetto. It is a safe place, this imagined placement of his body. Down below the streets of the ghetto are not safe. A German soldier has been killed and revenge is about to be sought. Boots are  heard on the ground, moving ever closer to number 9.
