No kids around by William Guilmain

What’s the purpose of his presence in these places? Is he looking for his own kid ? Is he looking for his own childhood? Is he one of these adults affected by the “Peter Pan syndrome “? Is he trying to trick the old age? Perhaps this series talks about mourning.

« No kids around » is the first opus of a photographic work that I am performing on the theme of the childhood.

This series is deliberately opened to several interpretations. It shows a man roving among children’s games located in parks and schools.

What’s the purpose of his presence in these places? Is he looking for his own kid ? Is he looking for his own childhood? Is he one of these adults affected by the “Peter Pan syndrome “? Is he trying to trick the old age?  Perhaps this series talks about mourning. The mourning of a child who would never have to die and that he is trying to bring to life? The mourning of the child whom was living in him?

Time is passing and the shiny colors of the games will not change anything about that.  The night is falling.

About William Guillain

William Guilmain is a self-taught photographer who fell in love with photography when he missed words for his poems. When he was 20 he discovered analogical black and white photography through the book “Errance” of Raymond Depardon. Starting this point he has never stopped to photography. As a researcher in biology he is constantly questioning the marvelous and scary world that surrounds us. He conjugates the desire of a direct aesthetic with the permanent desire to transmit an emotion and to question the reader who would spend some time on his pictures. Permanent lovers of women he dedicated to them the series “Urban Women” in which he questioned their place in the cities. His work becomes more and more intimate and shows his personal interrogations (series “No kids around”) that bring us to our own life doubts. His photography talks to us about the difficulty of being, on the quirks of our society, on the way to travel and the inner words. [Official Website]

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 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

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.
