Photos taken without intention or reflection; accidents of the present.
Maurice Renoma has chosen to present a selection of previously unseen photographs.
These images were not designed to become artistic objects. They are accidents, missed takes that are sometimes the genesis of accomplished works of his career.
Maurice Renoma instinctively turns to photography, a medium that allows him to spontaneously express his way of seeing the world, of behaving, of existing.
These first images constitute real visual notebooks and capture the movements of life, shadows and bodies. His gesture is automatic and intimate, dedicated to capturing the noise of existence, the form of emotions, the dimension of misdeeds.
This intimate photography freezes the subjects in “stolen” moments, by accident, just before and after the real pose; the blurs created preserve the mystery of the individuals and erase the boundaries between fiction and reality, shadow and light, perversions and virtues.
