Here are two cities, strangers, friends and even a self-portrait that pops up as a reflection in a shop window or as a watermark in this series of photographs. The self-portrait of an era, of a youth, of a quest. I found it interesting to combine these different subjects: the architecture of a city and that of a youth often keen to stage its own life, the inside and the outside, the street and the passers-by, the night and the day, or the intimate realm. In a sort of a way, these two cities correspond to each other, question and answer each other. They tell the same story: drifting, hanging out, sometimes in suspense. If photography is indicial, one may also make out in Julien Selleron’s images a topology. Not everything is clear, some images are blurry, but so are memories… and this is what makes them sensitive.
