La Modification – Projet collaboratif Arnaud De Grave & Arnaud Thurel

Arnaud De Grave - La Modification extra

« La Modification » est une exposition commune de deux membres de BOP. Il s’agit d’une exposition faite pendant un « voyage immobile » : Arnaud De Grave est parti en road-trip en Espagne et au Portugal tandis qu’Arnaud Thurel restait chez lui dans le Grésivaudan. L’un et l’autre correspondaient uniquement par l’entremise de quelques mots, envoyés chaque jour par sms (dans un sens puis dans l’autre) et à partir desquels chacun devait prendre des photographies avec comme contrainte d’en faire un triptyque au demi-format.

Reflections on Tokyo Subways

The Tokyo Subway is immense. Ignoring all the train lines, suburban links, etc. it is over 300km. Everything about it is dizzying, the scale, complexity, signage. You can travel for hours (without purpose…) and never get bored. It’s easy to focus on the overwhelming crush of humanity that makes use of this system, but the system itself is equally worthy of attention. Despite Tokyo’s image as a “future metropolis” much of the system is showing it’s age. Where the old and new meet it can be jarring: changing from an old to a new line can mean going from aging yellow tile, to sleek white panelling.

Having waved in many abandoned places, I ended up with this new material, this time focusing on people I met in these areas. Beside is a text written by Yannick Vigouroux, sociologist and photography historian, about my work.

Alienation - Isolation by hern42

One may chase something through solitude or through loneliness. Solitude is not synonymous of loneliness. There is no message behind these pictures. There is just nature, atmosphere, loneliness. And maybe there is serenity… In fear every day, every evening, He calls her aloud from above, Carefully watched for a reason, Painstaking devotion and love, Surrendered […]

lost places, lost images – 2010

Lost place 1.1

I always loved lost places. I don’t know why, maybe because of the Stephen King’s books I was reading when I was 12 or 13, where youngs were spending all their time in special places, waiting for “it” to appear and so on. Maybe also because of my father’s garage that has always looked like […]

Zulu: chasing dancing ghost …

Archived exhibition

In 2009 Yours Truly was asked to craft a book cover for Labyrint, a new Copenhagen-based publishing company translating French crime novels into Danish. I was sent to Marseille to walk the path of Fabio Montale and photograph the guts of Marseille’s side in Jean-Claude Izzo’s Total Kheops. Some of the results, which have hung in […]

Every street has a story to tell…

This exhibition will hopefully tell that Asian streets have many stories to tell. The stories they tell might be true, they also might be pure fiction. There might not be any obvious story. I am but a chronicler, a mere scribe. Does one really care? Isn’t it as true as we like it to be? […]
