"The façade is literally the first thing one sees of a building, as its surface. It can be imposing, superficial but can also suggest safety. I've always liked to wander around in a city, I walk through the streets with those questions in mind : what will happen if we stick to that first vision? If the daily life of “The Other” was only a scenery ? This series thus offers a vision of an unknown world that would only be a picture, without intimate space, where looks are the only refuge.
In my latest works, I was interested in showing these architectural surfaces at night enlightened by lampposts.
This, I think, intensifies the urban setting side. Is this artificial ? Not entirely in my view. Putting forward these surfaces encourages the viewer to take interest in the architecture and what it could shelter. I use photomontage as a willingness to make the observer care about the hidden subjects, as an invitation to curiosity."
