Despite appearances, the act is photographic. The protocol is precise, the technique is simple: 2 photographs superimposed one on the other, without any other artifice.
As an architectural photographer, I shoot volumes, perspectives, spaces, materials… as an art photographer, an auteur, I strive to manipulate these elements, transform them into the ingredients of a new creation.
Volumes recomposed, perspectives combined, materials superimposed. The result is a strange representation of space, a deconstruction of real. The eye attempts to reconstruct the two original images, in vain…it gets lost, hangs onto a detail, a clue to reality, before getting lost again. The onlooker finally accepts the fact that it is impossible to distinguish between the two images, the two spaces, simply observing the recomposed space. “entre-deux” evokes suspended time, the moment where place no longer has a function. It is no longer and is not yet. Furnishings and objects that could have provided an indication of what the place was used for have disappeared. The bright colors of the lights of the work area portends an imminent change, but remains insignificant in determining the future of the place.
