A life of experiences opens the way, short or long, fruitless or successful, from the void until death, passing through joy, indefinitely dilated. –Michel Serres
Without being able to define it clearly, started a very long time ago, this project of bringing together photographs from different spaces and times seemed confused or even unrealistic to me. And then, by dint of questioning the images and pushing curiosity, I realized that there was a tasty narrative thread in this pathway.
Photography is naturally a testimony that freezes a past moment and slows the passage to oblivion.
In my own way, even if it is lost in advance, my struggle against time is made up of a multitude of strange, sacred, hidden and improbable signs. This collection responds to my thirst for symbols in the representation of reality and allows to build a compilation of almost timeless metaphors where color has almost vanished.
Here, the places are unimportant because the theme questions the notion of survival and resistance in the broad sense. To survive with humor, we need a skillful mix of talents because the world remains a jungle.
So I invite you to discover part of a memorable journey.
