Alexandre Morelli announces the release of his self-published book entitled “Le temps ne compte pas (pour ceux qui l’ignorent)” (“Time doesn’t count (for those who don’t know)”).
Between 2010 and 2011, Alexandre Morelli engaged in a weekly photographic exercise. He documented in images the life of his neighborhood by photographing a public garden.
Using the photographic process he discovered in Smoke, the film by Wayne Wang & Paul Auster, he chose a unique framing and repeated the same shot invariably for 52 weeks.
From this series of images, Alexandre Morelli tries to solve the enigma of the presence of 2 exotic trees (a ginkgo biloba and a magnolia) in the urban environment in which he lives. “I wanted to know more about the history of these exotic trees that had become familiar to me. Who had planted them here, so far from their origins?” Conducted like an investigation, the book questions the memory of suburban cities and their transformation.
Time Doesn’t Matter (for those who don’t know) is a self-published book of photographs in a French-style format with rounded corners. The 112 pages of the book, plus the 4 pages of the cover, are printed digitally on Olin Regular Blanc Natural paper from Antalis, in 150 g/m2 for the interior and 300 g/m2 for the cover. This book was printed in 200 copies.
