En ce lieu

Benoit Capponi is Arnaud Thurel’s guest. His long-term work about World War I is showed in a BOP-exclusive exhibition. It relates to the deep research work Capponi has done based on some letters from the “poilus” ( French World War I infantryman, literally: “hairy one”.) and topographic studies of war field. This certainly is an impressive piece of work.

Black, no sugar.

Container Terminal

… This set which is not really a set provides, by an large, a glimpse of what my humble self has been stacking up over the years.

They never adopted the name for themselves

On the contrary it should be approached as a personal quest, expressionist and poetic, where the technique used (analog photography, vibrant imagery, blur, highly contrasted black and white, enhanced grains…) produces pictures close to paintings. Images which suggest more than they show.

In the heat of the night

Archived exhibition

The call usually wakes you up in the middle of profound sleep at night. In the excitement you just jump into yesterday’s clothes, put a fistful of film rolls in your pockets and dash out to the action scene with your camera at the ready. A fire is always very easy to locate: its phantasmagoric gleam guiding you like a lighthouse from kilometres away.

Morshihinskaya

Archived exhibition

Small Russian village on the north of Russia. It looks like many other villages in Russia which are situated far from the capital. The same old and poor, the same far-off and the same wild. But it’s more than an ordinary Russian village. This place is like a small spot in huge Siberia. Life between […]

Time and space

Archived exhibition

Grainy Points of View This series shows, with a somehow grainy aesthetic, links between space and time, time and space, the importance of geometry, curves, lines, and the point of view.
