“La photographie du portefeuille” is the result of a photographic collection carried out by Anne Delrez at the Conserverie, un lieu d’archives (Metz) en 2013.
“It has the shape of slightly fleshy buttocks, blunt corners, bits of tobacco sometimes stuck in its center, large scratches, a particular smell, annotations that have become illegible, miles of walking and travelling. This is the photograph from the wallet.
The one that, one day, was given to you and which, by necessity, forgetfulness, “like that” never left you. It’s in your bag, in your pocket, on your phone’s wallpaper so you can look at it and show it off. This is the opportunity.”
