Ailleurs, quelqu'un d'autre

"By the juxtaposition on the same photographic paper, of two images representing independant spatial and temporal settings, I compose a unique photograph, that engenders a new visual environment and suggests a different reading.

The construction of this juxtaposition is made according to a constancy; the simultaneous interaction between the image of a subject, a person, and one of a place. By the assemblage of these two, I attempt to enlarge the field of representation, transcend the literal reproduction. The state of mind that characterizes each setting, is one of a mobility of thought, a flight from the present time, where we hesitate between the past and the future, between dream and reality.

The concern that determines each one of the compositions, is the mutual prolongation of the components, by the dynamics of the forms, a rythm, in order that their union brings a "total image", a different representation that occupies the entire space of imagination. To construct a pensive photograph, enrich and transform the meaning of the image."
