New exhibition from longwei: DISCOUNT FUEL

Longwei comes back to BOP after a long road trip along the south of USA. The vision he brings to us is far from what we are used to see in his previous exhibitions. First : he decided to shoot in colour, and that’s really unsual for him. Then, you quickly realize when looking at these pictures that there is really emptiness all around : no people, no animals. Only remains the feeling that human came here, and that he left something before going somewhere else. The square format of the photos forces you to stop and watch them quietly. You try to go inside them and the colours, with so much blue, brings you to some extent in a special mood. For sure, you are not in New-York here, neither in Los Angeles or another big city, you are just in the middle of a huge and empty country. There’s some kind of Stephen Shore’s pictures in this exhibit, and in the end, a question rises in your mind : “hey man, what car were you driving during this trip ?”
