For the past year, Diane Chaudouet has been scouting out Berlin’s abandoned zones with the eyes of a “foreigner”, as she describes herself. With breathless talent and photographic elegance.
We met briefly, last summer. She was producing the first pictures of her series, I was captured by the fragile delicateness of her pictures. During the ensuing months taking pictures of the city’s shadowy and suspicious wastelands, she managed to capture the city’s hospitals, factories, and fire stations, transforming their decay into dazzling beauty.
We found Diane’s aesthetic sensitivity, the beauty, the light, the force and the frail vision so moving that for the first time, with Annie Boulat, we have decided to jointly present her work.
