Guris shows the very day when Catalunya decided to vote concerning Independency. Imagine California or Alaska asking for Independency. The vote wasn't constitutional,
yet it took place everywhere in the region. Waking up in Barcelona to images of policemen hitting citizens in what turned out to be for a day some election spots, I decided to walk around
in the city to capture the atmosphere.
Guris is a dirty word sometimes used in Barcelona to name expats & tourists.
As I did photograph this even from far,
I called the series this way.
A natural accident multiplied by the human intervention created this incredible zone called the Salton Sea : a water that is way too salty
to keep its creatures alive.
The salt turned a whole area into a cemetery. But as chaotic and desperate as they are, Salton landscapes are still amazingly beautiful.
Poindexter used to say that
chaos is what happens
when an angel falls in love with a demon. Wandering around feels like being a witness of this love-story...
I AM - CHARLIE
January 7th of 2015. Spontaneous reunion gathering Parisians place de la République,
a few hours after Charlie Hebdo's attacks.
January 11th of 2015. A march is organized through the capital. As we can't move anymore in the streets, it turns into a massive grouping.
November 13th, same year, the Bataclan.
It is the "state of emergency" since then.
In the country, in the city. Unable to work because of what's going on in my hometown,
I coupled my photos with a few lyrics by the Eagles of Death Metal... a bad work but...
ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL
Literally bricks in the wall or the granted : the absolute necessity to be another brick in the market wall of society.
Another Brick gathers photos taken in Paris in 2012. While the President of my country, France, was regularly saying that citizens from his country didn't want to work.
Urban landscapes do not tell the same story. Another brick is dedicated to the invisible, hoping to show some of it.
It's a series capturing temporary papers
hanged on the walls of the city.
It is also a work showing
what is written on these papers.
