“L‘the smell of the night was the smell of lilacs”the title of his exhibition presents the silver photographs he took himself and carefully selected the paper because “ he is the flesh of my image “. His pictures, cherish them, enhance them with the last treatment: gold ; tea ; wax… So they are unique, recognizable at first glance… but one glance is not enough : they are an invitation to slowness, and by taking this period of observation, they carry us very gracefully. A piece of clothing there, a scene with empty chairs in front of it, a pontoon and palm trees here again… the red thread of this work is full of beauty, sensuality and intense black… as intense as emotions. let’s feel it.
