In modern society, we all struggle to keep our identity. We all struggle to cope with our daily life. We cross each other in the same artificial landscape each one of us using strategies to keep ourselves on track of what we are, meanwhile being part of the invisible race for survival.
I work in very urbanized environments. It's a way for me to observe our strategies to exist in those impersonal and cold universes. Our gait, our postures, and our choices of clothing reveal our relationship to the modern world and its architecture.
Large white flat areas allow me to literally extract people from their world while maintaining this link that structures our appearance and behavior.
I do not edit my photos. Everything is in manual mode. It is on purpose; life does not replay.
Unlike the nature that envelops and accompanies us, these concrete architectures leave us face-to-face with ourselves. Modern monumental spaces are a moment of hollowness where our codes intended for the urban crowd become fragile. These crossings of open places put us in an unexpected solitude where we find ourselves revealed. Our public identity is confronted with our inner identity while crossing a monumental urban space.
