“What I didn’t see in Japan” is – as usual in my photowork – a photographic tentative for the scrutator to get inside the mood I felt when walking around a small town for some few days recently…
Benoit Capponi is Arnaud Thurel’s guest. His long-term work about World War I is showed in a BOP-exclusive exhibition.

One should check the group’s website, their name is Pince sans rire (which very badly translate to “dry humour” and […]
C’est un Japon assez insolite que nous propose Arnaud Thurel. On y trouve des paysages urbains quasiment dénués d’êtres vivants où les marqueurs typiques du Japon sont absent. On s’éloigne de l’image que l’on se fait de ce pays pour se plonger dans ce qui fait en partie la ville moderne. Arnaud Thurel nous montre […]
