The cellars are mysterious. Silent cathedrals, these spaces harbor a slow continued transformation. The wine evolves constantly, in the invisibility given by the oak of the barrel. In these places, space is closely related to time, that of the gestation of a liquid that can survive a generation of humans. Each cellar is an interpretation of the flow of years. These photographs transcribe the human desire for spatio-temporal beauty. Alexis Cottin started his career with photographer Thierry Bouët for whom he ran the studio. Then, he prepared his own stories: With his assignments in fashion and architecture, he produce series on time and space. CHAIS was exhibited in 2018 in different galleries and he realised his first book. He is 31 years old, and lives in Paris.
