Form does not exist without emptiness.
The relationship of the void between the built spaces is the base of my artistic approach. I draw from it a plastic and semantic material from which I build my graphic universe. It’s not the faithful reproduction of the building that matters to me. While respecting its origin, its nature, its function, I look for new forms. I create tension by disparate shadows, by divergent lines to create a dynamic and harmonic balance. An architect by training, I apprehend the photographic medium following the process of architectural design. I analyze the place to soak up its essence and try to collect a small detail without ever losing sight of the unity of the whole. Position myself as an observer of space, like the gaze of a wanderer immersing himself in an unknown place. The series “urban snapshots” attempts to alternate and mix the instant gaze as seen from above to encompass everything and the successive itinerant gaze of one who walks through this space. A perception inherited from the approach of Patrick Gueddes, sociologist and founder of town planning.
