When night meets color
The practice of color was taught to me at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, by two great colorists, Jean-Jacques Filassier and Jean-Philippe Lenclos, with whom I subsequently had the chance to collaborate. on various projects within their Parisian agency.
This series of photographs is entitled “When night meets color”. This title is a pretext to confront the intensity of these two components.
The night and the color open the way to the infinite space of the imagination and also wants to represent a hymn to the feminine and a hymn to freedom through the poetic symbol of the pomegranate fruit. This spiritual, mystical and magical fruit, I discovered it already as a child through the oral tradition of women in Kabylia, and later, in the literature of the great Sufi poets and during my travels in Iran, Turkey and Syria.
The brilliance of the assumed blur of his images in bright colors as well as the light are not afraid to be devoured by the black of the darkness of the night, to transport us to the elsewhere of another universe, and to give birth to life.
