By erasing everything that evokes animation; the city becomes a setting, a frame, a scene. This analysis brings this reading closer to that of naked portraits, paradise, timeless, without a trace of wrinkle... A reading in the land of dreams.

Empty in the city


"Empty in the city" is a photography and a fully digital image processing. I have not refrained from any of the facilities offered to me by this support. Most of the working time was spent taking pictures. I didn’t impose any tedious retouching work on myself.

At the beginning this report was a challenge: the idea of having images of empty Paris. The first photographs were taken on a whim. Then, after having aligned about ten of them; heights and angles of shots, lights and voids were imposed.

The fact of emptying the city of its inhabitants and everything that refers to movement, overlooks the implicit reference of the photographic image to the instant image. By choosing a transparent light, always substantially identical, I erase any reference to the change in time. The photographic space thus defined, timeless, disturbs the reading of the city which, by nature, is a space that can only be seen inhabited, in movement. The reader is reduced to an archaeological "reading", to imagining life from what he sees.
