Série « Façades »

France

2014 - Sélection du jury et de Fetart

The façade is the first thing we see, it’s the surface of a building. It can be impressive, superficial or safe.
Just like during a wandering through a foreign city, I walk through the streets with these questions: 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, with looks as the only refuge.
